A Fond Farewell
A fond farewell, with not one, but two delicious cakes for Karla Rosado, admissions, at the Worthington Atlantic City Campus, Feb. 4. Karla’s support and great customer service will be missed just as much as her crafty and beautiful bulletin boards. Best of luck and success at her new job from the Admissions team, and all of us on campus.

Local Ties to J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI
Thomas Coholan, security guard at the Atlantic City Campus, and retired police captain in the Atlantic City Police Department (Jan. 1988 to Feb. 2013) has family ties to the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover. Thomas’ father, Robert W. Coholan, served as an FBI agent from 1940-1968. When the FBI was established, Director J. Edgar Hoover made a point of personally meeting each agent face to face. Upon publication of the book, The Story of the FBI in 1947, Director Hoover personally autographed the book for special agent Robert W. Coholan on May 17, 1948. As noted in the accompanying photos, the book is the official picture history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and depicts the personal note signed by J. Edgar Hoover.
