“They are valuable to the College of Education. They run their departments extremely well and have done a great job toward our NCATE accreditation,” Watkins said. “I want to thank the search committee and the faculty in the departments of Special Education and Health, Physical Education and Recreation.

Wiggins graduated from JSU and has worked at the university for 34 years.

“This is a position I feel I’m qualified to do. I’m passionate about working with students who work with those who have special needs,” Wiggins said.

Bradley has served in a teaching capacity at JSU since 2002. She was an assistant track coach for the men’s and women’s teams from 1999-2000.

“I’m excited to be able to continue to work with the university in an administrative capacity. We have some wonderful plans to move the department forward,” Bradley said.
