New chaplain, health educator
Eric Two Wolfs Payne has been appointed to a one-year term as college chaplain while Skidmore examines how best to serve the spiritual needs of the campus community. He replaces Kathleen Buckley, who left Skidmore to assume the full-time chaplaincy at St. Lawrence University.
Payne, who brings both his Cherokee heritage and his Christian faith to the Skidmore post, is also a Skidmore parent—his eldest daughter is Letea Payne ’95. He holds degrees from Fisk University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Boston University.
Also this fall, a health educator has joined Health Services. Michelle Van Slyke has won awards for her work at SUNY-Oswego,where she supervised peer health educators and presented health and wellness programs. At Skidmore she’ll offer similar programs, and individual consultations, on eating disorders, alcohol and drug use, sexual safety and health, stress, smoking, and other issues. —SR
