October 2016

Wendy Williams
Faculty Information Specialist, Office of the Provost
“Wendy does not usually enjoy being in the spotlight, but she has played an important role in the Provost’s Office for many years, allowing numerous people across the College to come to know her as a trusted colleague and friend,” wrote Dana Garrigan, associate provost for planning and assessment at Carthage. “Among her many talents, I most appreciate Wendy for her attention to detail in handling sensitive information about faculty appointments, personnel reviews, and compensation. Her dedication to her work is remarkable. Wendy’s commitment to friends and family is also obvious to anyone who has spent time with her. We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to share in the growth of three of her children who have chosen to study at Carthage.”
