WTAMU Dean To Retire

 Dr. Jessica Mallard, West Texas A&M University leader of its Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities, will retire at the end of the 2023-24 school year.

Mallard joined WT in 2002 and was named dean in 2012, and her successor will be named following what WT described as a nationwide search.

WT President Walter V. Wendler, says Mallard will definitely be missed.

WT officials announced that The Jessica Mallard Scholarship fund has been established in Mallard’s honor by the Office of Academic Affairs, with a minimum of $1,000 to be given annually to one or more communication students beginning in fall 2024.

She oversaw the addition of eight newly endowed professorships among her faculty as well as newly added positions in the Department of Art, Theatre, and Dance.

 and during her final year oversaw 100 faculty members and more than 1,000 students across her College’s six academic areas.
