WELCOME ALLISON (Candace Hartley)
I would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome Allison Horwood to the Department.  Since mid-September, Allison has been assisting the Graduate office in her capacity as a casual employee.  As of December 15, 2010, Allison has been hired on a contract working 70% time.  From now until the New Year, she will be assisting Dianne with the applications, however, come January, she will be working to assist the Department with a wide array of duties.  In the short time Allison has been with us, she has proven to be very knowledgeable, and an excellent team player.  I look forward to having Allison work for us in this more "official" capacity!  Please join me in welcoming Allison to the Department.
