New VP for campus services

first_imgMeredith Weenick ’90, M.B.A. ’02, a seasoned administrator with significant operational experience in the nonprofit and public sectors, has been named vice president for campus services at Harvard University.“Managing the daily operations of an institution as large as Harvard while pursuing a strategic vision that supports its teaching and research mission requires a leader to maintain a delicate balance,” said Executive Vice President Katherine N. Lapp. “The skills that Meredith has honed with the city of Boston and several service-oriented organizations will be a tremendous asset to the University.”Weenick joined the city of Boston in 2002 as an HBS Leadership Fellow. She served for five years as a policy adviser to former Mayor Thomas M. Menino, working on citywide policy implementation in the areas of budget, finance, and performance management. In 2010, she became the city’s chief financial officer, overseeing its $2.6 billion operating budget and $1.8 billion capital budget, as well as its debt and investment management, financial auditing and reporting, and risk management. As a member of the mayor’s cabinet, she played a strategic role in organizational management and policy development.Prior to joining the city, Weenick spent more than 10 years in management positions in community service and workforce development, including service as the director of operations at City Year Boston and the deputy director of the Massachusetts Service Alliance, where she was responsible for the daily operations of the Massachusetts Governor’s Commission on National and Community Service.At Harvard, Weenick will assume responsibility for a department comprised of 1,600 employees and a wide portfolio that covers most of the critical operations of the campus, as well as such major University initiatives as the development of the Smith Campus Center and the Common Spaces program.“As an alumna of both the College and the Business School, I feel a tremendous connection to Harvard, which inspired me to public service and has had an immeasurable effect on my career,” Weenick said. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to direct the team responsible for the day-to-day operations of the institution.”The vice president for campus services reports to the executive vice president and oversees a multifaceted group of operating service departments, including facilities services and property management, sustainability services, real estate management (both residential and commercial), dining and hospitality, event planning, engineering and utilities, transportation and parking, global support services and international student services, environmental health and safety, emergency management, and the campus service center. She will begin her duties at Harvard on July 14.Weenick lives in Boston, and she has been active in several volunteer organizations, including Transition House, a Cambridge-based nonprofit that supports women who are victims of domestic violence, where she served as treasurer and a member of the board of directors.last_img read more

Who plays on ‘Sunday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for Week 11

first_imgFor those who can’t watch Bears vs. Rams on TV and wish to find the game on the radio, the Chicago call can be heard on Sirius channel 81 and XM channel 225, and the Los Angeles call can be heard on Sirius channel 83 and XM channel 226.MORE: Watch every NFL game and RedZone on DAZN (Canada only)Sunday Night Football TV schedule 2019All “Sunday Night Football” games start at 8:20 p.m. ET.Week 1Sept. 5 (Thur.)Packers at Bears Part of the struggles for both Chicago and LA has been the well-documented and shaky play of their quarterbacks. Yet, the Bears and Rams have reasons to believe Mitchell Trubisky and Jared Goff will perform to par Sunday night.MORE: Full betting preview for Bears vs. RamsTrubisky passed for 3 touchdowns and no interceptions in last week’s win over the Lions, with his 131 passer rating marking the third time in his career he has hit 130 or better.

The Rams QB has 3,279 passing yards, 23 TDs, 4 INTs and a 106.6 passer rating over his last 10 starts in LA.

Below are the explanations for each pick.Pick against the spread: Mitchell Trubisky used the Lions to break out of a massive slump while Jared Goff went deeper into his struggles against the Steelers. The Bears can run the ball on the Rams to make Trubisky comfortable while the Rams face more tough sledding for Todd Gurley and more pressure on Goff. Chicago should have a good fan presence, as well, Sunday night in Los Angeles. Pick: Bears win 23-20.Straight-up prediction: Before the season, anybody could have reasonably stated this Week 11 matchup was a preview of a playoff game in the NFC. It technically still could be, but neither the Bears nor the Rams inspire much optimism. The Bears finally showed some signs of offensive life in their win over the Lions last week, but the Rams, despite some struggles of their own, still have the more trustworthy attack. LA’s defense will get back on track, and coach Sean McVay will scheme his way to enough points for a win.

(Photo by Eric Rinehart).By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington High School girls softball team opened the 2016 season with a bang at Worden Park, taking down the defending state champion Augusta Orioles 6-2 and 8-7. The Wellington boys, however, were swept at Sellers Park by Augusta 4-2 in 11 innings and 8-1 in the nightcap.The Crusader girls with its five seniors would overcome a 7-2 deficit in extra innings in game two to complete a season sweep against the defending Class 4A Div. 1 state champions from Augusta. Granted, it is a new year for Augusta, which returns just two starters from 2015, and is playing a slew of freshmen and sophomores. Nevertheless, it was the first time Wellington has beaten the storied softball program in several years.Wellington opened the season with a 6-2 victory Monday afternoon – on an unusually calm and somewhat comfortable day at Worden Park. Usually, Wellington fans are being treated for frostbite after viewing early spring games at the softball complex in northwest Wellington.The Crusaders opened the season quickly with a run in the first inning. Junior Erin Goodrum smacked a triple to right field and came home on a Ryleigh Buck sacrifice fly. Augusta added two runs in the top of the fourth, but Wellington responded quickly with four runs in the bottom half of the inning.The Crusaders took advantage of three Oriole errors and hit three singles as Madi Lewellen, Bailey DeJarnett, McKenna Oathout and Avery Rusk all scored to give Wellington a 5-2 cushion. The Crusaders added an insurance run in the sixth when Rusk whacked a softball to center field for a double and came home on a fielders choice to give Wellington a 6-2 lead.Rusk secured victory in left field with a diving catch in the top of the seventh with an Augusta runner at third.Lewellen, a WHS junior, was the winning pitcher in the circle, allowing five hits, three walks while striking out 10. Wellington would churn out seven hits against Alison Macari, walking twice and striking out four times. Wellington had seven hits, including three from senior slugger R. Buck.Game two, Wellington pulled off a huge comeback after getting in trouble early. Buck, who would get two home runs in this ball game, opened the game by burying the ball over the right field fence to give the Crusaders a 2-0 lead in the top of the first.But Augusta would get two runs in the top of the second to tie the game. Then in the third, the Orioles would score five runs after two outs after Madison Wheeler slipped in a ball right between three Wellington defenders in short right field.Still, the Crusaders were undaunted and would chip away at the lead in the next two innings at bat. Buck hit her second home run to open the bottom half of the fourth. Then singles by Jacelyn Buck and Lewellen, brought in two more runs.Down 7-5, Rusk would double in the bottom of the fifth. After R. Buck singled Rusk home, Wellington loaded the bases. J. Buck brought her sister home on a right-field blooper and this game was tied at 7-all.The score stayed that way into extra innings when Augusta would load the bases with one out.But freshman third baseman J. Buck would make an unassisted double play on a catch and force out to end the inning.Wellington responded with DeJarnett singling and then eventually scoring on an Oathout single to left field.There were 26 hits in this game with Augusta hitting 14 of them in the losing cause. Interestingly, Augusta had just one double with the rest singles. Freshman pitcher Brooke McCorkle had a rough varsity debut for Wellington, allowing 13 hits, two walks while striking out two. Lewellen would relieve her in the fourth and allowed one hit and one walk.R. Buck was 3 of 4 at the plate.Wellington travels Thursday to Mulvane and then to El Dorado on April 4. Wellington isn’t scheduled to be back home until Monday, April 11.Game 1Augusta.   0 0 0 2 0 0 0.   2 5 7Wellington 1 0 0 4 0 1 x.   6 7 2WP Lewellen 7I 5H 2R 1ER 10K 3BB.LP Macari.Rusk 0/4 1R 1ROE.E Goodrum 1/4 1R 1RBI 1Triple 1ROE.R Buck 3/3 1R 2RBI 1DBL 1SF 1SB.McCorkle 1/2 1RBI 2BB.J Buck 0/4 2ROE 1FC.Lewellen 1/4 1R.B DeJarnett 0/3 1R 2ROE.A Goodrum 0/2 1SAC.Oathout 1/3 1R 1RBI.GAME 2Augusta.   0 2 0 5 0 0 0 0   7 14 2Wellington 2 0 0 3 2 0 0 1.   8 12 0WP Lewellen 4I 1H 0R 0ER OK 1BB 1HBP.    McCorkle 4I 13H 7R 7ER 2K 2BB 3HBP.LP DivineRusk 2/4 2R 1RBI 1BB 1DBL 4SB.E Goodrum 0/4 1RBI.R Buck 3/4 3R 2RBI 2HR 1ROE 3SB.McCorkle 0/2 1R 2BB. J Buck 2/4 1R 1RBI.Lewellen 2/4 1RBI 1ROE.B DeJarnett 2/4 1R 1RBI.Zimmerman 0/3 1BB.Oathout 1/4.—————The Wellington boys fortunes were not as good as their girls counterparts in WHS head coach Jeff Frazee’s coaching debut.Wellington got the season off to a good start grabbing a 2-0 lead early. After 2 1/2 scoreless innings, Wellington’s bats started flying in the third and fourth inning, but could only get two runs off of seven hits.Derek Driskell doubled in the third and would eventually come home on a passed ball to give the Crusaders a 1-0 lead.In the fourth, senior Jared Shields singled to start the inning, That was followed by a Wesley Gilmore and Connor Burnett hit. Shields came home on a Cameron Bartelson hit to make it 2-0. Wellington left the inning with the bases loaded.Augusta was held scoreless into the sixth, but would eventually score on a Keltiska double and this sent the game into extra innings.The two teams stayed knotted at 2-all when Augusta broke the stalemate in the top of the 11th on a Wesbrooks double followed by a single thereafter. Wellington could not score thereafter and the game ended 4-2.“Augusta is a good ball club,” Frazee said. “They were state semifinalists last year. For us to play them this tough was a good sign. Unfortunately, we were plagued with too many errors.”In game two, Wellington would lose 8-1. The Crusaders’ lone score came on a Shields run after singling in the top of the seventh inning.Wellington committed six errors in the two games.“We made six physical errors which are better than mental errors,” Frazee said. “Physical errors are those like overthrows or not catching the ball. Mental errors are much worse, making throws to the wrong positions.“We are going to get better. Our pitching was good. Our hitting was good. But we need to better with fielding.”Adam Hilt was Wellington’s starting pitcher and had a no decision. Noah Rinehart came in as relief. Jones was the losing pitcher in game two.Wellington, now 0-2, travels Thursday to Mulvane.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

first_imgPresident Mary McAleese’s chauffeur-driven State Mercedes was sent on a 400 mile round trip so she could be driven just 150 yards to the door of Letterkenny Institute of Technology.The car was sent on the huge round-trip journey on Thursday last when the President helped celebrate the 40th anniversary of the college.The President, on her last official trip to Donegal, arrived by helicopter around 11am. However her car had to be driven via Sligo for the two minute journey form the college football pitch to the front door of the campus because Gardai cannot cross the border.The estimated cost of the journey including the President’s helicopter has been put at over €3,000.The President was flown on to Co Meath for a golf competition but her car had to be driven back to Dublin after its 300 yard official function.The Irish Mail on Sunday claimed a number of onlookers were shocked to see President McAleese being met by A Mercedes car for the short walk to the College entrance. “It surely wouldn’t have been too much just to walk,” said one eye-witness.A spokesman for President McAleese’s office said “Plans for the President’s travel arrangements are determined by security and programming considerations.”EndsCONTROVERSY AS PRESIDENT’S CAR DRIVEN 400 MILES FOR 150YD JOURNEY IN CO DONEGAL was last modified: September 25th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LYITPRESIDENT MARY MCALEESElast_img read more
