IT department hires new portal manager

Dusek mugCraig Dusek is the new Web site and Portal Manager for Seward County Community College/Area Technical School. Dusek’s responsibilities include managing the college Web site, the digital sign, the queuing system and also he helps out with the IP phone system. Dusek said he had heard about the job offer though his stepsister Celeste Donovan. “I knew we were looking for someone for over a year.” Donovan said. “I think the IT department are a nice group of guys that he would would enjoy working with.” What Dusek likes most about Liberal is that it’s a break from what he was doing in Sioux Falls, S.D., as he mainly did information technology. He thinks multimedia and IT have a lot of crossover; however, there is still quite a bit to learn, which is something he looks forward to and he stated that he was excited about working with new software. “I have a lot of background with tech,” Dusek said. Dusek received his degree in electronics and engineering technology at South Dakota State University. Dusek not only likes the change in his type of work, but also the change in weather. “I’m happy to be here. I hope to settle in soon.” Dusek said. “I enjoy the weather because when I left [Sioux Falls] it was below 19.” Another thing Dusek enjoys about working for the college is that the IT department is very supportive of each other. “Because of our background, we all help each other out.” The IT department also made him feel right at home. “I clicked right away; I like the people.” Donovan is happy about her stepbrother’s new job. “It’s a hard position to fill, but I think he’ll do a great job.”
