Robin Jones leaving ECEP

Robin Jones has announced that she is leaving ECEP. She will be working full-time with her husband, artist Jason Jones.  Robin came to ECEP in 2012 and quickly proved herself invaluable to the project. She has been a great training advisor, assistant to the director and friend. While we will miss her, her keen wit and steady influence, we sincerely wish her the best in her future endeavors.

Dear ECEP Trainers and Community,

I’m sad to announce I will be leaving the University of Arkansas in December. My time with ECEP has been so special. Getting to know this wonderful early childhood community has been both professionally and personally rewarding.

My last working day with ECEP will by December 20th. I will have very limited access to my UA email account, once I leave. If you need assistance, please email ecep@uark.edu. The ECEP staff will take care of you!

Thank you for being part of my community and friends during my time at ECEP!

Robin Caudle Jones
