After eleven years of employment at Sandhills Community College, Dean of Learning Resources John Stacey says he still pinches himself that he landed at Sandhills. “There is nothing better than ‘fit;’” he says, “being the right person in the right position at the right time in an organization.” Originally from Bridgeport, Connecticut, John began his career by earning a bachelor’s degree in education with an emphasis in middle school teaching and went on to garner a master’s degree in education with an emphasis in instructional media and technology. His doctorate is in education with an emphasis in staff training and development. He came to Sandhills after working at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst for 27 years. In his spare time, John enjoys reading – of course. He is also a talented musician who can play the guitar and carry a tune. Sailing is another of his passions. His ultimate good time is singing and playing his guitar while on his sailboat with a good book nearby. Dr. John Stacey is retiring at the end of Spring semester 2017. He will be greatly missed!
