Pickup needed for a day

June 11, 2015 Personal Announcements Comments Off on Pickup needed for a day Posted By: Raymie Porter

I need to borrow a pickup to pick up a family heirloom desk from my brother’s house in Kankakee, IL (about 3 hours from Huntington) and haul it back here. I’m somewhat flexible on when, but the desk needs to be picked up before the end of June. To minimize any inconvenience, I’ll let you have the use of my car while I borrow your pickup.

Resignation

May 6, 2015 Personal Announcements Comments Off on Resignation Posted By: Samantha Brown

HU Faculty & Staff,

The time has come for me to share some news about a couple of changes that will be taking place in my life here in a few weeks. I am sad to inform you all that I am resigning from my position as admissions counselor, and my last day of work will be Friday, May 29th. After my wedding in June, I will be moving to Terre Haute, IN, to be with my husband, Jake Essig who is currently earning his master’s degree from Indiana State University. While I am extremely excited to begin this next stage of life with Jake, I am saddened to leave this wonderful institution that I’ve called ‘home’ for the past 6 years. HU has been and always will be very near and dear to my heart because of the life changing experience I had as a student. It has been a huge blessing to work alongside many of you over this past year, and I want to wish you all the very best as you continue to further the mission of Huntington University!

Best regards,
Sam Brown

A transition in University Relations

April 17, 2015 Personal Announcements Comments Off on A transition in University Relations Posted By: Heather Barkley

Dear campus community,

With mixed feelings, I am announcing my resignation from HU, effective May 31. The last 10 years at this institution have been life-changing for me. I’ve grown and learned more than I ever expected, and so much of that is due to the amazing people that make up this campus community. I am grateful for the many colleagues, friends, and mentors I’ve had at HU. It has been a privilege to work both in the University Relations and Graduate/Professional Programs areas, which gave me the opportunity to see our campus from a holistic perspective. It has been an absolute joy to teach students in the Department of Communication and in the Professional Programs.

I am leaving for a role that my husband, Josh, and I have prayed for over the last six years – full-time mom. … Continue Reading
