Of course, every good leader has a dedicated team, and Christina has certainly had that during her time in this crucial role. Although there are countless staff members who could be named in this message, I would like to give particular recognition to several key areas of support for Christina this past year. Special thanks go to Alex Devers, Beth Greene and Chris Griffin, who stepped into pivotal roles as case managers within our quarantine and isolation support team; Eileen Roth for her amazing work in supporting a complex move-in process and building meaningful connections with our off-campus student community; Bridget McCann for her tireless work as our Testing Coordinator this spring; and Jennifer Metzgar and Diane Rogers, who served as our contact tracers and patiently communicated with and supported students, families and employees through the tracing process, which was key to minimizing the spread of the coronavirus. I would also like to recognize our talented and devoted staff at the Hammond Health Center, led by Dr. Ellyn Sellers-Selin, who continue to remain at the forefront of this critical public health work.
As we begin to turn our attention to the future, it is with bittersweet feelings that I share with our campus community that, as planned, Christina will be returning back to her role as Associate Dean within HSHP by July 1, 2021.
