August 21, 2020

KEENE, TEX. – We have had several transitions and there are now a few new faces at Southwestern Adventist University (SWAU) for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Ana Patterson is now special assistant to the president. She previously worked in the Department of Business Administration. In her new role, she will assist with the management and coordination of institution-wide projects and initiatives. “I am excited to have the opportunity to serve young adults during such a pivotal time in their lives,” says Patterson. “I look forward to joining a team that is dedicated to making our campus a welcoming place where students from all walks of life can grow in knowledge and faith.” 

Rahneeka Hazelton, has worked at SWAU for eight years and has transitioned to the role of Assistant Vice President for Enrollment. Hazelton shares, “I am enthusiastic at the opportunity to learn new and innovative ways to make the Southwestern experience even better.” She wants future students to know about the value of a Christian education. “Here at SWAU, we are more than friends; we are family. I know that sounds cliché, but I mean it and I am ready to prove it.”

Erin Maloney, Satyanarayana Ramella and Keila Santos-Crespo have also joined the SWAU faculty. The staff and faculty at SWAU work together to ensure quality education is provided within a Christian environment.
