Nursing Faculty Stage Wild Costume Contest

The blond wigs were out in force for Monday’s meeting of College of Nursing faculty, with Dean Anne McNamara overseeing a wild and crazy Halloween costume competition between graduate and undergraduate instructors.

“There’s a little bit of frivolity going on here,” McNamara acknowledged as things got under way at the Howerton lecture hall.

The nine-member graduate “Barbies” team — introduced via PowerPoint and onstage — included characters such as Trailer Trash Barbie (Margie Amity), Tent City Barbie (Kay Turk), Geisha Barbie (Sabine Garrett) and Fairy Barbie (Jo Podjaski).

However, they were upstaged by the undergraduate faculty, an eclectic mix of nine that included Aphrodite (Sheila Searles), ’Lopes Superfan (Cheryl Roat), two witches (Leigh Tovar and Lisa Hardeke), a “pregnant” elderly woman (Marsha Ramstad), a Roman goddess (Ronda Kerns), Party Rock Girl (Deb Evinrude), Tattoo Lady (Sherri Spicer) and Princess Leia (Jeannine Mequi).

Assisting the cause of the undergraduate team was Searles’ son Christopher, who was dressed as an ape and crawled about the room on all fours, making a solid impression for authenticity.

Barb Thomas of Human Resources served as one of the judges. So if the aforementioned faculty suddenly disappear from the rolls of the employed at GCU, we’ll all know why.

Bible Verse

"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:20)



Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
