The College will throw Bockman a retirement party on Monday, June 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. EDT in the Emmaus Dining Room. The party is open to the public, with cookies and punch provided.
Growing up, Bockman attended LaPaz Elementary School and Plymouth High School, graduating from Plymouth in 1963.
She went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Education and Library Science from Ball State University in 1967 and a Master of Library Science from Indiana University in 1992.
In addition to her varied interests outside of the workplace, Bockman has plenty of family-related events to look forward to as well. On July 3, she and her husband, John, will celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary. The two have four children – Elizabeth, Kathleen, Phillip and Jane – and 11 grandchildren. According to Bockman, the family expects a 12th grandchild – a baby girl – to follow very soon.
