“The timing was right for both of us,” said Katherine Myers, administrative assistant at the Student Union Building, when referring to her June 30 retirement date, which happens to be the same day that long-time employee and SUB director, Cheryl Wallace is retiring—Wallace also happens to be Myers’ supervisor. The two will depart UNM on the same day after working together for the last six years.  Prior to her time working with The University of New Mexico, Myers worked for theAlbuquerque Youth Symphony, where she coordinated tours among other things. Her well-rounded career included working at a middle school, the Girl Scouts, and in an emergency room at a Colorado hospital—her favorite job before coming toUNM.
