Debra Haring is the recipient of the 2010 Witmer Award for Distinguished Service which provides University-wide recognition to a select number of staff members for careers characterized by outstanding and sustained contributions to the University. Although, as we all know Debra has gone on to the Dean’s office with a major promotion, for 8 years, she was the go to person for any challenging task within our department. She virtually created the job she left, filling needs as she saw them and always exceeding expectations. We are so pleased that her accomplishments have been recognized in the form of this award. We are all richer for the years we worked with Debra and have no doubt she will be equally successful in her new position as Assistant Dean for Grants & Contracts.
