DOE appoints three new members to Advisory Board
OAK RIDGE, Tenn. - - The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge Office (ORO) has appointed three new members to its Oak Ridge Environmental Management advisory board. The new members will fill vacancies on the Oak Ridge Site Specific Advisory Board (ORSSAB), a volunteer citizens’ panel that provides advice and recommendations to DOE about its environmental cleanup operations on the Oak Ridge Reservation. The board has 20 members.
The new members Jacqueline Hagy, Corkie Staley, and Robert Stansfield were introduced as new members of the ORSSAB at the Feb. 8 monthly meeting.
“Since the establishment of the board in 1995, there has never been a shortage of dedicated, well-qualified, and service-oriented individuals willing to volunteer their time and expertise to serve the board and the community. Their commitment requires hours of personal and uncompensated time to research the complexities of environmental management issues present at the Oak Ridge Reservation, attend meetings, and conferences, just to name a few of their duties,” said Susan Cange, DOE’s Oak Ridge Environmental Management Program acting manager. “Fortunately, Hagy, Staley, and Stansfield are no exception and I am looking forward to collaborating with them.
Hagy is a financial services representative with First Tennessee Bank, and she participates in a variety of United Way Campaign activities. She has also served as a member of a professional women’s organization, a domestic abuse shelter board, and the Chamber of Commerce. She attended the University of South Carolina. Hagy lives in Alcoa.
Staley is a retired teacher from the Oak Ridge City Schools system, beginning in 1987. She is a current member and past president of the Oak Ridge Education Association, a member of the National Education Association, and a member of the board of directors of the Tennessee Education Association. She received her Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in education from West Virginia State College and her Master of Science degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Tennessee. A returning member, Staley served on the ORSSAB from June 2000 - 2002. Staley lives in Oak Ridge.
Stansfield is a retired geologist who worked with varied organizations and government entities during his 30-year career. He received his B.A. in geology from the University of Connecticut and completed a number of additional courses in related topics. He has authored and co-authored numerous hydrogeologic publications. Stansfield lives in Knoxville.
The ORSSAB is a federally chartered citizens’ panel that provides independent advice and recommendations to DOE, which is responsible for the cleanup of the Oak Ridge Reservation.
The ORSSAB meets the second Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Office of Science and Technical Information, 1 Science.gov Way, in Oak Ridge. Meetings of the board and its committees are open to the public, and notices are posted on the board’s website: www.oakridge.doe.gov/em/ssab.
