Myrna says Farewell

by Myrna Hays

It was with mixed feelings that I announced to DFA Chair Ian  Kennedy my decision to retire from my job as Executive Director. I  began working for the DFA in December, 1979; that is a long time! I  have enjoyed my work and have tried over the years to serve faculty  interests as well as possible. Many of you served in leadership  positions during my years with the DFA. So I will miss working with  all of you. It has been a wonderful journey from which I learned a lot and enjoyed many new experiences.  On the other hand, I am pleased that the DFA board has selected an excellent replacement for me: Eric Hays. He has  actually been serving the DFA in an informal way ever since he was a teenager when he persuaded me to invest in a computer and taught  me to use word processing; he has been my computer geek ever since.  It is time for the DFA to have new energy and his youth will help  to provide that while his experience of hearing DFA issues discussed around the dinner table for all these years will help to  maintain the long term memory of the organization. Eric has been working also with the CUCFA Vice President of External Relations  and the nexus of the two roles will serve both entities well. So I  hope that you will welcome him into the organization and bid me  farewell. It is time for me to move on to other activities such as  enjoying quilting and spending time traveling and playing with my  grandchildren. Thanks for all the support you all have given me over the years!
