submitted by reissenw@augsburg.edu

It is a bittersweet feeling as I announce that Jill Davenport, Manager of Purchasing and Contract Services will retire Friday March 23rd after 8 1/2 years of dedicated service to Augsburg. Jill has been a wonderful Auggie working with great energy and enthusiasm! In 2016, Jill was honored with an Outstanding Staff Award for her fine work and service managing significant contract relationships for the bookstore, dining services and copy services. More recently, she facilitated a new policy to ensure that purchases were made with accessibility in mind, specifically with software purchases. I am especially grateful for Jill’s great work in stewarding the ACTC Purchasing consortium in-house at Augsburg, an important role that allowed us to keep this critical collaboration and formal engagement going forward. With only days to go, please take a moment to send Jill your good wishes for this next chapter of her journey. And, please come to a reception in Jill’s honor scheduled for Wednesday, March 21st at 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. in the Marshall Room of the Christensen Center. (Formal remarks will begin at 2:30 p.m.)
