I have worked at Eastern for thirty years.  I was hired as a media maintenance technician and was located in the Library in the Instructional Media Center (IMC).  When that department was dissolved I spent several years as a Computer Maintenance Technician with what is now The Office of Information Technology.  My job title now is Information Technology Systems Specialist V.  I supervise a crew of two full time technicians and five students.  We design, install, and maintain the enhanced classrooms.
