Curley takes job in Ohio
For the Logos
Boxes cluttered the office of Dr. Russ Curley as September 22 marked his last day on campus.
Curley served as director of Student Support Services for five years and is leaving NIACC to accept a similar position with the University of Cincinnati in Ohio which serves approximately 35,000 students compared to NIACC's 2,700 students. He assumed those duties Oct. 1, 1998.
Curley's career at NIACC began August 1985 when he served as coordinator for the Charles City center. He worked four years with Adult Education and Continuing Ed serving both Charles City and Mason City.
For one year he worked with JTP (Job Training Partnership) as Student Services Specialist helping adults and youth throughout the NIACC communities. Last year, Curley received his PhD at the University of Iowa and has conducted various ACE workshops and classes on campus.
Curley said he will miss "the students, staff, and faculty. In a nutshell the people."
He said he and his family are excited about the new challenges and opportunities that remain ahead.
According to Terri Ewers, who has been named his successor, Curley will be missed by students, staff and faculty.
"He added a special insight to program needs" she said.
Another counselor is scheduled to be hired soon in Student Services.
According to the Monday, October 5, 1998 edition of The Des Moines Register, Republican legislative leader and gubernatorial candidate Jim Ross Lightfoot "would increase support for Iowa's community colleges because of their important role in job-training." It also said he "wants to bolster agriculture research" in the state.
