Hey All--

It is with deep appreciation, many congratulations, and a touch of 
sadness that I tell you that Anya Shyrokova will be leaving Wikimedia at 
the end of July to go to graduate school.  Anya has been accepted to the 
University of Michigan's School of Information.  Her last day at WMF 
will be July 30, 2010.

Anya began work as our first Development Associate on August 26, 2008. 
In September 2009, Anya earned a promotion to Stewardship Associate, 
working with our middle donors ($500 to $10,000).  Anya was a large part 
of the success of our 2008 and 2009 Annual Fundraisers, managing an 
infinite amount of donor inquiries and setting up many of our policies 
and procedures.

The fundraising team, along with the entire organization, will miss 
Anya's eternal earnest hard work and her deep commitment to Wikimedia's 
mission.   Please join me in wishing Anya the best as she pursues her 
academic endeavors.  She has mentioned more than once that she plans on 
staying involved in the projects and our mission.
