Reekie, Shirley (Kinesiology) is Stepping Beyond


“Over the past eight years Dr. Shirley Reekie has provided extraordinary leadership as chair of the Department of Kinesiology. She has guided the faculty, staff, and students through unprecedented growth in undergraduate majors, impaction, furloughs, the worst of financial constraints, nurtured the start up of the Timpany Center, mobilized and led efforts with students and faculty in support of the physical activity requirement, proactively dealt with curricular changes related to the SB 1440/STAR Act, spent untold hours on the planning and implementation of SPX building renovations, rejuvenated our alumni reunions, welcomed visiting international scholars, met with prospective donors, and through it all helped the department weather all storms and provide a dynamic academic environment for our students. A high five and thank you to an exceptional colleague!” — Bethany Shifflett
