Dr. Evalin Rhodes Hanshew to Retire after Three Decades at Richmont

For nearly three decades, we have been blessed to have Dr. Evalin Rhodes Hanshew directing the university’s clinical affairs, encouraging students, managing professional supervisors, leading the Hope Center initiatives, and so much more. After prayerful thought, she has decided it is time to leave behind her 45 mile (one way) commute and transition into retirement.

Evalin - Save the Date

Some of the words and phrases that several of her colleagues and various alumni used to describe Evalin recently include:

  •  She is an integral part of Richmont’s fiber.
  • She has epitomized the ideals that have made RGU a leader in training and equipping clinical therapists.
  • She is passionate about building the whole person.
  • She personifies our deepest desire for excellence.
  • She carries with her a quiet and steady peace everywhere she goes, regardless of surrounding circumstances.
  • She has inspired us to be all that we are in Christ.
  • Her patience is calming, her dedication is encouraging, and her trust is inspiring.
  • Without saying a word she makes us want to be better people.
  • She will greatly be missed, but her legacy will certainly remain.

Please join Richmont’s faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends on April 19 for a reception celebrating this milestone and wholeheartedly thanking Evalin for her deep commitment and excellent service to Richmont. Beginning at 5:00 p.m. we will have a heavy hors d’oeuvres reception and a time of thanks and celebration at 6:00 p.m.

Thank you in advance for sending your RSVP to Zach Brooks: zbrooks@richmont.edu / 404-835-6138. We look forward to having you with us!

 

Dr. Keny Felix, Dean of the Schools of Counseling & Psychology, Serves as a Panelist on Behalf of the National Black MBA

ATLANTA, GA – (March 4, 2015)

On Tuesday, February 17, Dr. Keny Felix, Dean of Richmont’s Schools of Counseling & Psychology, served as a panelist with the National Black MBA (NBMBAA) Atlanta Chapter. The topic for February’s gathering, “The Business of Relationships,” offered tools for balancing growing business lives with personal life commitments. Held at the Georgia Power Auditorium, Dr. Felix joined three other panelists who serve a wide variety of clients around the world.

“It was a wonderful evening and a great opportunity to meet black professionals serving in various capacities throughout the city of Atlanta” said Dr. Felix. “Relationships are central to our personal and professional lives, so I was delighted to share my knowledge and experience along with my fellow panelists. I am grateful to have had the opportunity.”

The panel was moderated by Dr. Alduan Tartt, a clinical psychologist, professional speaker and parent/relationship consultant. This year’s panelists included: Dr. Sherry L. Blake, therapist to television stars, mental health expert, and keynote speaker; Mr. Jack A. Daniels, psychotherapist, best-selling author, syndicated columnist and international speaker; and, Dr. Pamela Thompson, psychologist, professional life coach, author, and inspirational speaker.

Since inception in 1980, the NBMBAA has grown from 20 charter members to having more than 2,000 members today. Current members hold MBA (or similar) degrees and the association focuses on Education, Career/Professional Development and Entrepreneurship. This was Dr. Felix’s first opportunity to serve as a panelist with the NBMBAA. He looks forward to future opportunities to collaborate with the NBMBAA and other organizations serving the greater Atlanta community.
