Susan is resigning her position as an Accountant in Financial Services to return to her former position as the Controller at Wells College. Susan’s last day of employment at Ithaca College will be February 3rd.

Susan could always be counted on to take on new assignments and to complete them in a thorough and reliable manner. She will be missed a great deal by those that worked closely with her.  We will especially miss her sense of humor and light hearted personality. 

Please join me in wishing Susan the best in her return to Wells College.
