"In making this appointment, I also would like to publicly recognize and thank Keith Welch for the terrific job he has done as the interim radiological control manager," Ferguson said.
"Keith will continue to serve as the deputy radiological control manager, where his experience and talent will be critical to the sustained success of this group, and the laboratory. I appreciate your support of Vashek, Keith and the Radiological Control organization as we put in place the top-notch organization to suit the needs of Jefferson Lab well in to the future."
