Margaret Dew  has departed CMIT; her last day was December 22.  The good news is she is still on campus. She has taken a position in the Business School as an Information Specialist and Support Coordinator. Margaret joined CMIT in July, 1991 as a part-time scheduling clerk.  She became full-time in 1995 and subsequently took over media acquisitions while continuing her scheduling duties. She has been a wonderful member of the CMIT team these nearly ten years, and has earned an excellent reputation among the faculty and staff for her diligence and professionalism. We will certainly miss her, but we wish her the best in her new position. Please join the CMIT staff in wishing her well and thanking her for her years of service.
