Dr. Robert Tompkins was a fellow faculty member in the Department of Physical Education and served as Head Baseball coach for CMSU. Dr. Tompkins served as faculty advisor to the PEM (Physical Education Members, professional student organization), ran 5 miles daily and was an avid fisherman. Dr. Tompkins suddenly died at the young age of 56 from a massive brain tumor. In 1996 Sandy Gross, a student, initiated the original Tompkins Run/Walk to support the American Brain Tumor Association. Dr. Tompkins supported physical activity in children and adults.
