Andrews named VSU faculty marshal

Dr. Stan Andrews, associate professor in the Valdosta State University Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, was recently named faculty marshal by Dr. Hugh C. Bailey, VSU president.

Andrews replaces the retiring Dr. Joseph Tomberlin, head of the History Department, who served as marshal for a decade.

As faculty marshal, Andrews is responsible for helping to coordinate university activities like Honors Day and commencement. At graduation exercises, Andrews will lead the faculty processional and announce the graduates as they walk across the stage. His duties begin with Summer 2000 Commencement July 28.
"I feel very honored that President Bailey saw fit to appoint me to this prestigious position," Andrews said.

A Valdosta State faculty member since 1991, Andrews has held several campus leadership roles, including: acting department head, member of the Faculty Senate, chairman of the Academic Honors and Scholarship Committee, chairman of the State Charitable Contributions Program and assistant faculty marshal.
