Student services coordinator Suzi Skinner retired after nearly 12 years with the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering. She helped thousands of students during her time at AME.
“The high point of my career has been interacting with students and seeing them grow from being freshman to graduates,” she said.
Skinner plans on making trips to see her grandchild and spending time with her family.
We gave members of the AME Facebook Fan Page an opportunity to say a few departing words to Suzi. Below are some of the comments:
- Suzy is really great and helped us in many ways which is really appreciable. We were guided in the right directions by her. Love you Suzi. You will be missed for sure. You are awesome. – Pratyush
- Thank you Suzi for all that you have done. You’ve helped so many of us during our time at OU. Your hard work, dedication and kindness have been noticed by many. You will definitely be missed. – Christopher
- Suzi made me feel so comfortable from my first day on campus. It was always a joy to stop by the office for a chat or a quick hello. If I needed help with anything, Suzi was the first person I’d ask. Enjoy retirement, sweet lady! You’ve earned it. – Ada
- Noo Suzi!!! We almost made it to the end together!! Getting my undergrad last year and now being one semester away from my master, def couldn’t have done it without your wonderful guidance and honest advice!! Thanks a million and I hope to come around soon before I leave! If you have a question always stop to see Suzi!! 🙂 – Diego
Truer words could not be said about Suzi and her dedication to AME. Suzi’s successor is Kate O’Brien.
