I am very pleased and excited to announce that DoVeanna Fulton, the distingused Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Houston-Downtown has been elected the new President of SSAWW, as from January 1 2016. DoVeanna was elected unopposed.
I should like to welcome her to the Presidency that I am vacating. It’s a wonderful job, made especially wonderful by the great membership and the brilliant SSAWW officers and executive.
