Extension Personnel Changes

Livestock Update, August 2002

Mark McCann, Department Head and Extension Project Leader

As of July 1, Paul Ruszler and Bill McKinnon have taken the ASO package and retired from their positions in the Animal and Poultry Sciences Department. Both had given a lot of their talents and time to both adult and youth programs in Virginia and will be sorely missed. Additionally, Phil Clauer's departure for Penn State last summer and Larry Lawrence's departure for the private industry in Kentucky this summer have left the department with more programs than faculty support. In an effort to maintain some level of support in critical program areas, some duties have been juggled.
