Farewell and Good Luck Kirsten Hensley

UNYSLA wishes a fond farewell and good luck to Kirsten Hensley. Kirsten was an active member of UNYSLA assisting with posting job openings to the Web site and most recently aiding in the redesign of the new UNYSLA site. Her dedication, inventiveness and overall good humor were invaluable in the Web site redesign process and she will be missed. We wish her and her family well with their new life out west! Kirsten
