During the month of July the CESSCE/OTS lost one of its founding staff members, Liz Casey, who was our Event Coordinator and Executive Aide for six years. Liz left Johnson City to be with her husband who secured a new position in Tallahassee, Florida.
We were sad to lose Liz, as she worked tirelessly for the Center of Excellence and the Olympic Training Site. Her efficiency in getting the job done was remarkable, and all of our students and faculty here at ETSU wish Liz all the very best in her new adventure. As many things in life, the circumstances were right, and we were fortunate enough to have an intern from Texas A&M University this summer, who did an outstanding job during her internship, and stepped into Liz’s shoes very comfortably. (Interns take note! An internship can be a stepping stone to full-time employment when you do a great job.) We have persuaded Emily Brockelman to stay with us as our full-time Event Coordinator and are excited to have her on board.
