Virginia Moxley, who was dean from 2006 to 2013, ends her year of phased retirement this summer after more than 25 years of service to K-State. She was associate dean from 1985 to 2005 and earned three degrees from the university.

Bill Meredith was associate dean and director of the School of Family Studies and Human Services. He entered phased retirement in 2009 but continued to teach and promote scholarly exchanges with universities in China.

Not present at the event but also retiring this year is Sharon Morcos, who taught thousands of students the basics of nutrition as an instructor with the Department of Human Nutrition.  A registered dietitian, she also taught foodservice systems management, clinical dietetics and human needs during her career at K-State.
