Long-time Winthrop University Fine Arts Associate Professor Paul Martyka passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, Jan. 27.The Detroit, Michigan, native taught drawing, painting and printmaking in the Department of Fine Arts. Funeral arrangements have not been completed.At a prayer vigil held Tuesday night at Rutledge Building in the printmaking studio, students and friends came together for a powerful display of love for their professor. As Martyka spent his last hours in intensive care, his students recalled a man who ordered his life so that nothing was wasted, always put the students’ interests first and displayed a quiet compassion and concern for their well-being. One of his favorite sayings was: “Now, get to work.”His admirers said Martyka had a knack for taking materials, redefining them as sculpture and changing their meaning. His printmaking abilities were equally gifted and were laden with icons and symbolism.Read mnore: http://www.winthrop.edu/news-events/article.aspx?id=43330

Ernest Roach, Jr., who worked in Winthrop University's facilities management for 35 years, passed away Jan. 24. He was 88. A York County native, Roach was a World War II U.S. Navy veteran and a member of Woodland United Methodist Church. "Ernie" began working at Winthrop in 1948 after his war service, one of only two electricians on campus. He met and fell in love with Winthrop student Jacquelyn. They were married for 62 years.Ernie's time at Winthrop--1948 to 1985--saw much change. He and his fellow electrician Johnny Nichols converted the entire campus (lines, switches and transformers) from a 2,300-volt primary system with lots of overhead poles and wires to a 4,160-volt underground system that is still in use today. He was responsible for the star on the Winthrop Christmas Tree every year, a feat that had him climbing an old ladder lashed to the tree's great trunk. "He was always cheerful and thoughtful and did all his work in a methodical and extremely neat way," said Walter Hardin, associate vice president for Facilities Management. "He was a true craftsman, devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend and loyal Winthrop employee." He is survived by his wife; his brother and sister-in law; his son, Ben, who also works at Winthrop; and his grandson.

Geology Professor Irene Boland, 74, a Rock Hill native who earned her Ph.D. 33 years after completing her bachelor’s degree and falling in love with geology, passed away Sunday, Jan. 3.Her department chair, Pat Owens, said that Boland was a very special person who discovered a love for geology more than two decades after graduating from Winthrop. She was also noted for her love of her students. Winthrop awarded Boland the James Pinckney Kinard and Lee Wicker Kinard Award for Excellence in Teaching at the December 2012 Commencement ceremony. She also received the Phi Kappa Phi Excellence in Teaching Award in 2000 and served on the Board of Directors of the Carolinas Geological Society and was its president in 2005.A few years ago, the National Park Service published the Digital Geologic Map for Cowpens National Battlefield. About 90 percent of the map was completed by Boland, an effort that took years of work.In 2014, Boland established a new Winthrop endowment to assist geology and physics faculty members in attracting and retaining high-caliber students interested in conducting summer research projects.
