After five and a half years and more than 1,000 articles, Jonathan "JMac" McVerry is ending his tenure as the writer/editor for ASMO. He joins Penn State's Social Science Research Institute as its new Communications Manager. It was a good run. JMac enjoyed meeting hundreds of Penn State employees over the years and hearing their stories. There is more to the organization than most people realize and he especially enjoyed learning about all of the angles of the operation. It was an honor working with ASMO's great creative team and JMac wishes everyone good luck and great ideas in the future.
