Weekly Wave: Long-Time WRRC Assistant Director Susanna Eden Retires
December 17, 2020 was a bittersweet afternoon at the WRRC, as we “cyber-gathered” to bid farewell to one of our own, Assistant Director Susanna Eden. Dr. Eden (or Susanna, as everyone knows her) first joined the WRRC as a graduate student in 1988 and returned after a hiatus of a dozen years in 2005. While she wore many hats at the WRRC, she is a gifted writer and took on responsibility for the publication of the quarterly Arizona Water Resource newsletter and annual Arroyo after the retirement of long-time editor, Joe Gelt, in 2009. On December 17, dozens of Susanna’s friends and colleagues gathered on Zoom to wish her well and share memories of research projects, writing efforts, and mentoring relationships. We will miss seeing Susanna day-to-day, although she will still be engaged with the WRRC in a new, more advisory capacity in 2021. We wish her the absolute best in her future endeavors and thank her for her past contributions and professionalism, leavened always with friendship and good humor. Please feel free to continue to contact Susanna at email@example.com.
