The newly appointed faculty members – William McFarland and Kyle Neeley – will serve as adjunct instructors of Computer Science.
“McFarland and Neeley bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom,” said Dr. Joanna F. Blount, Dean of Academic and Student Services. “They join a diverse group of dedicated professionals who make Ancilla a great place for our students to learn new skills. Both will serve our students well.”
McFarland holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a minor in Management Information Systems from Indiana Tech. He previously served as a Computer Technician and Programmer Analyst at the Culver Educational Foundation, and currently serves as the Software Manager at the same facility.
Neeley holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science from Winthrop University. He is currently working on a Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at Indiana University – South Bend. Neeley has served as a Teacher’s Assistant in mathematics and as a math tutor. He is currently the Preteen Coordinator at Nappanee Missionary Church.
“Ancilla College strives to hire faculty who are student-centered and willing to go the extra step for students,” said Blount. “This is especially important at Ancilla where many of our students are ‘first generation’ and are getting their first experience in a college setting. Students today have so much to adjust to and it’s helpful for them to realize each faculty member is a partner in their learning process.”
Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
