She was 56. Dr. Kerry Romesburg, president of UVCC said, "She was a very dedicated employee who helped to build this institution. We are all deeply saddened by her death." "Veonne was an administrator with great vision, and that vision is reflected in the quality of the general education program at UVCC," said LucileStoddard, vice president of Academic Affairs. "The general education program grew in almost miraculous fashion under her leadership, with limited resources." Stoddard described her long-time friend and colleague as "extremely austute in working with faculty and staff, and said she was able to make strong decisions without being threatening. She showed great finesse." "She approached her duties with thorough and thoughtful consideration, basing her judgements on strong data," continued Stoddard. "She expected her chairs and faculty to offer rigorous programs in order to provide a body of knowledge that could compare with any major university in the United States. She selected strong faculty to teach in these programs. Under her direction, she was able to bring strong general education programs to fruition in a relatively short period of time." Dr. Kim I. Brewster, department chair for the Humanities, English, and Fine Arts, commented, "In my 30 years of teaching, I've never met a more fair, even-handed, and compassionate administrator. It will be difficult to replace her both for her ability and her compassion." She attended Utah State University and graduated with a bachelor's and master's degree from BYU in business education. She will receive her doctor of education c"cgrcc from BYU posthumously during the April, 1990 commencement exercises. Howlett had taught at UVCC since 1966.
