COLLEGE OF THE SISKIYOUS
Nancy Shepard will be retiring from College of the Siskiyous October 7 after almost 24 years with the College. She arrived in Siskiyou County in August 1991, following a spouse who came to teach Geology at the College, and hauling along two one-year olds. Before coming to Siskiyou County, she was a Librarian at the Science & Engineering Library at Washington State University in Pullman. At Siskiyous, she worked in the Library doing ILL for a few years before taking off on the wild chase that has become Distance Learning, first videoconferencing in 1997, and later, adding online classes. When Dennis Freeman retired as Library Director in 2011, she was talked into administering the Library, keeping Distance Learning, and, a couple of years later, doing a stint overseeing Technology Services. Now it’s time to move on to different wild chases, this time around and out of the country, as well as taking up more tame pursuits at home. She will miss her colleagues at Siskiyous and around the state, but is also looking forward to a more leisurely pace of life.
