Marlboro, VT - Marlboro College announces the hiring of two new staff members as well as the creation of a new position to be filled by returning staff. Carrie Weikel, who has served as the director of student activities since 1999, will be taking on new responsibility as director of community service and career development.

The creation of Weikel's position, which will focus on career counseling, graduate school preparation, and community service planning, signals a step forward in Marlboro's effort to enhance career services for students.

Lyons served as director of financial aid at the New England School of Acupuncture from 1989 until taking the position at Marlboro. She earned a B.A. from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and most recently participated in a three year Feng Shui program at the New York City Open Center. She now lives in Brattleboro.
