Case Leaves EHS After 11 Years of Service

April Case, a longtime member of the Department of Environmental Health and Safety, has left UT for other opportunities to promote her professional career.

During her time at UT, Case progressed from managing environmental programs to leading a team that also included industrial and worker safety programs. Most recently she served as interim director after the former director, Mark Smith, retired in April 2018.

“Through her experiences and accomplishments, April covered a broad spectrum of technical environmental health and safety areas, which made her a valuable asset and resource for the team and the campus,” said new EHS director Sandra Prior. “It made her the perfect choice to be the interim director because she understood the needs of the different groups.”

Case’s last day at the university was January 7, 2019.
