Newell to retir
By ROBIN ADAMS .
r Chronicle Assistant Editor
After 30 years of teaching, 20 of them at
' Winston-Salem State University, Dr. Virginia K.
Newell has resigned.
'We accept her retirement with regret," said Dr.
Haywood Wilson, interim chancellor at WSSU. "It
will be very difficult to replace her, but we wish her
well in her decision."
Newell, who came to Winston-Salem State in
1965, developed and implemented WSSU's young
but growing computer science program.
"You need to leav<? while you are on a high,"
said Newell, who is fecyperating at home from a r4-i
cent operation. "It's bifetter to leave when it's growing
rather than stay (here and let it taper off.*'
The primary reason Newell said she decided to '
leave is because of the State's retirement policy.i
After 30 years as a stafe employee, it costs more to
continue to work than to rfcttos. said Newell
