We are excited to announce Sam Ballard as the newest member of the TLC team. Sam stepped into his role as IT Specialist on October 12. He is responsible for CSC Online-Sakai, the academic web, and web log (blog) support. In coming months, he will expand services to include instructional media production and post-production services.
Sam comes to us from Manna Systems & Consulting in Chadron, where he was a Senior Technician. At Manna, he supported clients in developing websites; implementing hardware and software solutions; managing web, database, and domain servers; and designing marketing strategies. Sam also has plenty of experience as a freelance marketing and branding consultant at Samuel Ballard Creative.
Interested in all things technological from an early age (he enjoyed building Franken computers), Sam started a computer sciences degree at the University of South Dakota then transferred to CSC to take advantage of a-reasonable-cost education. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in business administration in 2012.
We are glad to have Sam on board and feel as though his contributions will make life at CSC easier and more interesting. Sam’s wife, Chelsea, is also a CSC employee; she is the Project Coordinator for Housing & Residence Life.
Be sure to stop by the TLC to introduce yourself and extend a warm welcome to Sam. His office is ADM 001, and he can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 308-432-7089.
