Elizabeth Hatmaker was much loved by the students she supervised, as evidenced by the introduction they wrote to issue 12.2: "This issue is dedicated to Dr. Elizabeth Hatmaker, who served as the faculty advisor for Euphemism from 2005 to 2016. Her desire to support budding artists and writers led to the founding of this journal and its mission to represent a myriad of creative voices. She will continue to be an inspiration for our staff and for the work we publish each semester."
