A Change Of The Guard

After much reflection, Mark Skelding has decided to “retire” from education and our graduate program as Academic Coordinator to pursue his passion in landscaping and begin his own company in Franklin County. We are very sad to see Mark leave but one of his dreams has been to pursue ecological sustainability and we wish him well and the very best of luck. Mark’s last day will be May 31st. Wendy Baker has accepted our offer to replace Mark as academic coordinator and she begins this month. Wendy brings with her many years of experience working in Public Schools and has been a part of our program for over 10 years. We are so happy to welcome Wendy to our program and know that this change will be in keeping with our overall philosophy and commitment to you our students. Wendy will be working closely with Vanessa as she learns the “ropes” and we hope that you will join us in welcoming her to our Field-based Graduate Education department.
