Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law has promoted Louise Petren to director of faculty support services and Shannon Mullins to coordinator of faculty support services.

Petren, a native of New York, has been with Stetson for 22 years. Born in Queens, NY, her first job was working on Wall Street. Petren moved to Florida in 1972 and began working at Stetson Law in 1984.

“As the new director, I will strive to uphold our reputation for providing excellent service to both the faculty and students,” Petren said.

Mullins, a native of St. Petersburg, joined the college in 1997. She is pursuing a B.A. in human development at Eckerd College and will graduate in May 2007. A full-time student at Eckerd College and full-time employee at Stetson Law school, Mullins’ excellent grades made Eckerd’s Dean’s List in fall 2005.

“I am excited about my new position as coordinator of the faculty support services, and look forward to many more rewarding years with Stetson,” said Mullins.

Connie Evans, who retires this month after supervising the department since 1987, said “I am confident that Louise and Shannon will make a strong team, and together with the assistance of a fine staff, they will carry on the legacy of professionalism in this office for many years.”

Evans, a native of Tampa Bay, has been with the college for 24 years.
