Timeline of the Shipley Presidency





January 3, 2008 To the Shepherd University Campus Community:

Welcome back, and Happy New Year to all of you. I am looking forward to the beginning of the Spring 2008 Semester and wish to provide you with an update on recent staff developments.

Kim Scranage, who has ably served as Acting Vice President of Enrollment Management since last February has accepted my offer of the permanent position. Randy Friend has taken on many of the responsibilities of the Admissions Office and will now serve as Acting Director of Admissions. My thanks to Kim and to Randy for their capable leadership of these critical areas.

In 2007, the Board of Governors and President Dunlop re-allocated funding for the vacant position of an executive-level Assistant to the President, to be filled after a new president was selected. In the fall, we advertised nationally for this position and a small search committee selected finalists from an outstanding and diverse applicant pool of candidates. I am pleased to announce that Shelli Dronsfield will join the office as Assistant to the President on January 14. Shelli is a graduate of Hood College and currently serves as Assistant to the President at Trinity (Washington) University.

I appreciate your efforts to do all that you can to help Shelli, Kim, and Randy to succeed in their new roles this year.
