ARC Welcomes New Staff Member!

At the beginning of July we welcomed Chris Scoggins as our new Administrative Coordinator. Chris is a great addition to our permanent staff! We are lucky to have him aboard. 

While new to the ARC, he is no stranger to Mercer, having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the College of Liberal Arts and most recently a Master’s degree in Public Health from Mercer University School of Medicine. Chris manages the ARC’s staff of lab assistants and works closely with all staff members to assure the smooth operation of the facility. Chris also provides tutoring services in computer skills and APA formatting.

Outside of the ARC, Chris is an avid private pilot who enjoys flying recreationally.
