Lincoln (Neb.) - July 15, 1998 - Michelle Waite of Hickman has been named assistant to the chancellor for community relations at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Waite, who has 10 years of experience as a legislative aide in the Nebraska Legislature, most recently was an aide for Sen. Ron Raikes of Lincoln. She previously served in a similar position for former Sen. Ron Withem of Papillion. Waite, who received her bachelor's degree from Doane College in 1992, will begin her new duties Aug. 1.
The assistant to the chancellor for community relations is the principal assistant to Chancellor James Moeser in relations between the university and many of its external constituencies, including the state legislature and other governmental agencies.
"I am delighted that Michelle Waite has accepted the position of assistant to the chancellor for community relations," Moeser said. "With her experience as staff to two key members of the Nebraska Legislature, in sensitive negotiations and in arranging special events, I believe that she will be an ideal person to represent this office and to advise me on the many areas related to off-campus issues."
Waite succeeds Kim Todd, who left earlier this year to
work at Finke Gardens and Nursery in Lincoln.
