Susan Haas Retirement Celebration

Please join the Office of Financial Aid in celebrating the retirement of our co-worker Susan Haas 1-3 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16, 209 Stratton Administration Center. Susan has seen a lot of changes in federal regulations over her 31 years of service to the university. And many of those requirements were not easy to implement or explain, yet through it all, she has been a steady voice of patience, empathy and genuine sincerity to our students and families. We wish Susan a relaxing retirement now as “Momo” with no more files to review.

Bernard McCree, Office of Financial Aid
