The Marshall University School of Theatre announces the retirement of our Administrative Assistant, Helen Majdalany. For the past twelve years the theatre program has been very fortunate to have Helen as our administrative assistant. She has contributed enormously to the success of our program, through her efforts in managing school budgets, academic scheduling, and general administrative advice and support. She has worked tirelessly as an advocate for our students and our program. We wish her the very best in all her future endeavors.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Professor Nicole Perrone has tendered her resignation. She will be moving, with her husband Josh to the Cincinnati area.
