Welcome Back Assistant Professor Jane Faulkner

The Equestrian Department is excited to announce that we have lured Jane Faulkner out of retirement! Jane will be leaving cold, snowy Michigan to return to balmy Southside Virginia for the spring semester. She will be working part-time supervising students at the Equestrian Center on weekends, as well as helping out with special events and guest instructing.

AT Students take 2nd Place
