2nd Annual Staff Day of Service a Huge SuccessStacey Anasazi (Museum of Art), Liz Hait (Kahn Institute), Juliet Hansen (Development), Linda Gregory (Libraries), Naomi Miller (Engineering), and Ashli Stempel (Executive Education)

On May 6, 2015, six staff members volunteered at Nuestras Raices in Holyoke for a Day of Service. Jonathan Surrency, Volunteer Coordinator, gave the group of tour of the farm and oversaw the work as they spent a beautiful spring day wielding shovels, hammers and pickaxes to dig trenches. The volunteers also replanted peppers and planted spinach in the Community Youth Program garden. All ended the day with a good feeling of making a positive difference in our community.

Staff Member Jen Blackburn on Jeopardy!

Jen Blackburn, administrative assistant for the Poetry Center and Department of French Studies, competed on the popular quiz show "Jeopardy!" Said Jen, "Overall, the experience was fantastic! Everyone here at Smith has made the experience so much fun, and I'm just bowled over by all the nice notes and phone calls that have come my way." Hear more about Jen's time on "Jeopardy" in our November issue of "The Chronicle!"
