Karen Chytalo, a SoMAS graduate and a great friend and supporter of SoMAS, retires from the NYSDEC this month. SoMAS commemorated the occasion with a retirement send off celebration for her in Endeavour 120 on June 27, 2019. Larry Swanson presented her with a canvas print of Karen with Bill Wise back in their graduate student days (picture above), and Anne McElroy and Jim Gilmore praised Karen for her years of service.
Karen graduated with a Masters in Marine Environmental Science in 1979.
