Ann Salmon is Leaving...

Dear Friends of LTS:

With sadness, I announce that the Rev. Dr. Ann Salmon has chosen not to pursue the renewal of her contract at LTS. Dr. Salmon will be missed as a teacher, Dean of Chapel, and Director of Internships.

With joy, however, the Saskatoon Theological Union Heads of Colleges, St. Andrew’s College Principal Richard Manley-Tannis, The College of Emmanuel & St. Chad Principal Iain Luke, and President Harrison announce that Dr. Salmon has been hired by the Saskatoon Theological Union to be Director of the Doctor of Ministry program, succeeding the outgoing director, Dr. Jennifer Janzen-Ball. Dr. Salmon is a graduate of the DMin program; she has also served as a DMin project director and a member of the DMin Committee. We are looking forward to Dr. Salmon’s continued presence among us in this part-time capacity.

As this academic year ends, please stop by LTS and say goodbye to Dr. Salmon as an LTS faculty member and wish her well as she pursues her new position as director of the STU’s Doctor of Ministry program.

The Rev. Dr. William Harrison
