Joan Cleland

Joan Cleland, who served as administrative assistant to three PSU presidents, retired in June.
“Pittsburg State University is a wonderful place to work, and
I will miss spending my days here,” Cleland said.
Jaime Vanderbeck, who served for seven years as assistant director of PSU’s Office of Graduate and Continuing Studies, succeeded Cleland as assistant to the president on June 21.
Vanderbeck, 33, is a PSU alum, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2003 with a bachelor of science in psychology. In
2005, she earned a master of business administration from PSU.
