Regents approve emeritus status for two
YPSILANTI — The Eastern Michigan University Board of Regents granted emeritus status to two former staff member at its regular meeting Jan. 19.
To be awarded emeritus status, faculty and staff must have served EMU for at least 15 years and be nominated for emeritus faculty status upon retirement.
Staff granted emeritus status are:
- Carolyn Norton, accountant, cash control, financial services, retired after 33 years of service. Norton, of Ypsilanti, received a bachelor’s degree from EMU. EMU has been a part of Norton’s family for more than 50 years. Her father was a bricklayer who worked on many of the University’s buildings, including Pray-Harrold and Snow Health Center. Norton attended the Roosevelt Laboratory School on the campus of EMU and received her high school diploma in 1969--the school’s final year of operation. Her EMU career began with a summer job in the dish room of Dining Commons ONE. She has since worked at Snow Health Center, payroll, accounts payable and the accounting department.
- Judith K. Salyer, assistant director of Student Business Services, retired after 22 years of service. Salyer, a resident of Ypsilanti, began her career at EMU as manager of cashiering operations. During her tenure, Salyer initiated new processes to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Her efforts resulted in electronic billing and payments, online payment plans and a Web site to promote and sell EMU products.
