Center Staff Transitions

Posted: September 26, 2013

We are sad to see one of our staff members go, but we celebrate her promotion within the University. We are also pleased to welcome two new staff members to our team.

We would like to extend warm congratulations to Samantha Sheckler, who accepted a position in the Department of Agricultural Economics, Sociology, and Education here at Penn State. We are very grateful for Samantha's service to the Center and wish her well in her new position.

We also welcome two new staff members to the Center. Amber Evock, (formerly Houser) who joined us in August, will be providing staff support to Katey Burke on a part-time basis. Amber is co-funded on a number of different grants, including the National Agricultural and Rural Development (NARDeP) Center and Global Food Security Grants. Amber was just married on September 21st! Congratulations Amber!

Kristen Devlin also joined the Center in September as a Communications Specialist. Kristen is primarily funded on the Global Food Security grant, and to a lesser extent on the NARDeP and other grants.
