Dorothy McCoy has resigned from her position as Catering Director of Zorn Dining Commons effective Thursday, October 17. There is not currently a replacement or interim position, but the dining commons staff are currently in search of one. Director of Campus Life Jennifer Ferrell sent out an email to faculty and staff regarding the vacancy.

The email states, “During this interim vacancy, direction for catering will be covered by the in-house team of Jackie Romito-Carey (Resident District Manager) and Kirstyn Vitovich (Assistant Resident Dining Manager), both with great experience in that area.  Jackie served as Catering Director at a previous institution, and Kirstyn came on board at KSC originally working with catering.  A search for the new Catering Director will begin immediately.”

All dining events that are already planned or are currently in process will not be affected by McCoy’s resignation.

According to Romito-Carey, McCoy left for personal reasons. No further information was provided.

KSC President Melinda Treadwell said she hopes the best for McCoy moving forward.

“I think she has another opportunity and it’s just sad to see her go. She’s wonderful and brilliant. She’s got a great aesthetic eye and sets up really beautiful things. I’m going to miss her, but I wish her well,” Treadwell said.

Anyone with additional questions or who is not sure who to get in contact with can contact Ferrell directly at jferrell1@keene.edu.

Vitovich and McCoy did not respond to request for comment.
