In Memoriam

Our dear friend and colleague, Ms. Tasha Chandler, passed away March 18, 2018. We remember Tasha as a consummate professional and steadfast friend. Her contributions to the Division for the past 10 years have been numerous and central to our success. Tasha began her career at the Division as an administrative research coordinator. Most recently, Tasha served, with excellence, as our Manager of Grants & Resource Development. We already miss her humor, dedication, friendship, and clear-thinking. The Division will feel her absence for years to come. Our thoughts are with Tasha’s family and friends. Services for Tasha will be announced soon.
