Comings & Goings, April 2021
Each month, amazing people both arrive at and depart from the SON. We tend to recognize the newcomers, but sometimes valued employees leave without a public acknowledgement of their service. The SON Human Resources Department would like to change that. So, as we once again welcome Research Program Assistant II Sh'Asia Henley, Associate Director Campus Operations Dean Threatte, and Research Data Analyst Alexandria Granbois, we’d also like to acknowledge the contributions of colleagues and friends like Senior Instructional Technologist Elisabeth Danner, Research Program Assistant II Clarence Daniels, and Senior Admissions Officer Deb Driscoll. Best wishes to all from the SON family.
