Throwback Thursday: Milo Manley at the HNC

Yesterday SAIS recognized staff members celebrating milestone years of service at Johns Hopkins University.  Although HNC Deputy American Co-Director Milo Manley could not be there in person, we here in the HNC Washington Support Office would like to acknowledge his 25 years of service in Nanjing at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center.

A graduate of the HNC certificate class of 1989, Milo began working for the Center on June 11, 1989, one week after the Tiananmen protests (read about Johns Hopkins' decision to keep the HNC open in 1989 here).  In the 25 years since, Milo's knowledge of China and the Hopkins-Nanjing Center has been invaluable to the success of the Center.

As Deputy American Co-Director, Milo's responsibilities include logistical and technical support, fiscal management, orientation of new personnel, and general administrative support of the Center. Milo also serves as Acting American Co-Director when the American Co-Director is away from the Center.  However, he does so much more than is reflected in his job description.  

Carolyn Townsley, Director of the HNC's Washington Support Office, says "Milo's dedication to and love for the Center has been boundless and exemplary.  His dedication and consistent efforts have been a stabilizing force over 25 years of transition."

Thank you, Milo!
