JENNY STANLEY NAMED NEW RESEARCH SPECIALIST!
At 3:02 pm on Friday, October 21 Jenny received word that she was awarded the position as Research Specialist with NCPCP. She replaces Lesley Starke, who assumed responsibilities as Plant Ecologist in September (though she had been functioning as such since January when Rob Evans left).
Jenny has grown tremendously since joining NCPCP proving herself a dedicated and hard-working member of the team. She says she is especially excited to actually have an office now! PCP is headquartered in the old Health Bldg in Raleigh. Prior to accepting the position, she worked from home, most of the time in the field. Her position was one that required a full month "off" (unpaid) each year. [Jesse's fund helped those in this position with daily living expenses.]
She will still be in the field, but will assume other official duties as well, including responsibility for issuing access permits, mapping, plant monitoring and much more.
We welcome Jenny to full-time status!!!!
