Farewell, Susan Bartlett

In June we said farewell to our talented colleague, Susan Bartlett, who is moving on to pursue other dreams after leading the Connections Adult Literacy program for the past four years.

“It has been a real joy to serve adult learners all over the state and to work with my colleagues and especially our talented Connections facilitators at New Hampshire Humanities for the last four years,” she said. 

Susan will be working to complete a nonfiction manuscript and prepare it for publication, and taking courses towards a MA degree in Literature and Creative Writing at Harvard Extension School. She also plans to volunteer with Syrian refugees through Cross Cultural Solutions in Greece, collecting oral histories of their flight from their homeland. In addition, having flexibility in her schedule will allow her to spend more time with and care for her elderly mother.

Connections has flourished under Susan’s skilled and creative leadership over the past four years,” said executive director Deborah Watrous. “We will miss Susan’s fine work, her many contributions as a member of our team, and her infectious laugh.”

New Hampshire Humanities is thrilled to announce that Terry Farish, who coordinated Connections from 2008–2013, is stepping in to cover the program on an interim basis. You can reach Terry at tfarish@nhhumanities.org or 224-4071, ext. 112.
