Janis Simons steps into lead administrative support role in Dean’s office

A familiar face is in a new place in the CALS Dean’s office. Janis Simons, a veteran program assistant there, has moved over one desk to take the lead administrative support role. This is the position previously held by Madelyn Alt, who left last month to take a job in the School of Medicine and Public Health. A search for a successor to Simon’s previous position will be opened in the near future.
