Western Nevada College News & Notes: WNC makes 8 emeritus appointments
Western Nevada College honored eight dedicated and long-serving employees with faculty emeritus appointments on May 21.
Receiving emeritus status were Deborah Case, Counseling Services director/counselor; Andrea Doran, Child Development Center director; Richard Finn, criminal justice professor; Kristie Gangestad, Library Services; Anne Hansen, Information and Marketing Services director; Gil Martin, art professor; Ken Sullivan, Library Media Services director; and Linda Whitehill, Community Education director.
The newly appointed faculty emeritus honorees were recognized by WNC Acting President Mark Ghan for their years of service to students, faculty and staff, and presented with plaques prior to commencement ceremonies on May 21.
For emeritus status consideration, the candidate must be a WNC faculty member for at least 10 years, served in academic or administrative positions and have a distinguished history of service to Western Nevada College. An emeritus committee presents recommendations, and the college president, the Academic Faculty Senate and the Administrative Faculty Senate make appointments based on those recommendations.
