  • OLLI South Announces New Manager

  • We are very pleased to announce that Darcey VanWagner, currently Operations Manager at OLLI Central, will become OLLI South Site Manager effective June 1.  Please give her a warm welcome to OLLI South!
    A bit about Darcey:
    Darcey VanWagner joined OLLI Central as the Operations Manager in September of 2015.  She has been involved with many different projects and initiatives while at OLLI.  This would include moving from paper to on-line registrations, researching and moving site locations, starting on-line courses and evaluations, and updating training for facilitators. Darcey has enjoyed meeting all the wonderful people at OLLI.  Prior to working at OLLI, she had over 15 years of supervisory experience in the financial industry.   Darcey is a Denver native, married, and the mother of two children.  She has a son that is finishing his freshman year at Kansas State University and a daughter in 7th grade.  Her third “child” would be a sweet, white golden retriever.  When not working, she enjoys spending time with the family and playing games.  She also enjoys bike rides, exploring the mountains, cooking and travel.  Darcey is very excited about her newest adventure as the OLLI South Site Manager.
