Hanson to retire as WT Communication Department head after 31 years at school

CANYON — “Old teachers don’t fade away. They just keep teaching.”
That’s how Trudy Hanson, Ph.D., says she’s looking at her impending retirement as head of the Department of Communication at West Texas A&M University. Hanson’s career as department head and professor will end Jan. 15 after 31 years of service to the university.
Her colleagues agree: Neither Hanson nor her influence on the department will fade away.
“What’s life without Trudy? It’s hard to think of the department without her,” said Jessica Mallard, Ph.D., dean of the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities. “But she has prepared the department well. I feel like she has given us the tools to continue.”
