Meredith says good-bye to Sizemore, welcomes new dean
By Marsha Tutor
A picnic was held in honor of Sharon
Cannon, the new dean of students, and
Dorothy Sizemore, the former dean of
students. Wed., April 19 from 4 - 6 p.m.
The picnic was held in the courtyard
to make it very inclusive for all stu
dents, commuters and residents,' fac
ulty and staff. The gathering was a
celebration to say “thank you” to Dean
Sizemore and “welcome” to Dean Can
non. The entertainment for the picnic
was provided by Will Silver, who
played an assortment of music on the
keyboard. Silver is a social studies
teacher at Daniels Junior High School
in Raleigh.
Sizemore and Cannon were easy
to spot because they both wore daisy
corsages. Daisies are a part of
Meredith’s history. Cannon comes to
Meredith from Greensboro College
where she was Director of Leadership
and Orientation Programs. Cannon’s
husband, Jeff, was also in attendance
at the picnic. He works in student
development for the business school
at UNC Chapel Hill. Cannon is very
enthusiastic, and eager about her new
position asdeanofstudentsat Meredith
College. If you were unable to meet
her at the picnic, her office is located
on the second floor of Cate Center.
She will eagerly welcome any students.
