Terry Tomalin, Outdoors Editor for the Tampa Bay Times and an adjunct professor at USFSP, died on Thursday afternoon, May 19, following a heart attack. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Terry’s wife, Kanika, and their two children, Kai and Nia.

Terry was well loved by many. Our students learned much from the man his dean, Frank Biafora, says, “brought Florida Studies to life.”
