This process will come into play at the end of this week when three of the English Department’s best runners will pass their batons to new runners. Kirk Melnikoff, the Undergraduate Coordinator and and Associate Chair, will pass his baton to Jen Munroe, who will take over Kirk’s administrative responsibilities. Pilar Blitvich, the English Department’s Director of Graduate Studies, will hand off her baton to Lara Vetter. Aaron Toscano, the Director of Advising, will pass off his baton to Sarah Minslow, the English Department’s new full-time advisor. Actually, Tiffany Morin will run a lap with the advising baton until the first of August when she will pass it to Sarah, who is eager to get in the race.
