Thank you so much, Dr. Tenopir, for your distinguished service to UTK, great stewardship of the School, and for paving that bright future!


I am very happy and excited to be part of the SIS family.  I can’t wait to meet you all in person (or virtually) in the next few weeks.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions and/or need anything. Have a great summer😊

Subject: Goodbye and Welcome to new Director


Wednesday June 30 is my last day as Interim Director of SIS and we will welcome new SIS Director Dr. Abebe Rorissa. Our future looks bright under Dr. Rorissa and I know he will look forward to communicating with you all and hearing from you. Thank you all for being an important part of our Volunteer family.

After 27 years at UT, I will be retiring July 31, but I will still be a Vol in my heart! I wish you the best in your continuing studies.
