Congratulations to Susan Heath, CVM's Employee of the Month for July! Susan has been at the CVM only a little over a year, but it feels like she's been here a lot longer (in a good way!). Susan came to the CVM from the MSU Controller's office, where she had been since 1994. As CVM's Academic Affairs Manager, Susan's role is high-touch with our students, and that's what she likes best. "Helping them reminds me why this University is here," she says. "In my previous job on campus, I worked more with individuals in each department and had very little contact with students . . . I love working with the students at CVM!" Outside of work, Susan enjoys reading and spending time with her family, including daughters Courtney (17) and Camryn (9). She is an active member of First Baptist Church here in Starkville.
