Joy Scourey was selected as interim assistant vice president of Student Financial Services and will begin her new role on Feb. 22.

Scourey has served as senior associate director of SFS since 2012 and brings more than 26 years of experience in financial aid and scholarship administration to the position. Brian Dixon recently accepted a leadership role at the University of Texas, and his final day as assistant vice president will be Feb. 19. Administrators, faculty, staff, and students are welcome to sign and leave their farewell message for Brian.

“We are thankful to Brian for his dedicated service to WSU,” said Saichi Oba, vice provost for enrollment management. “He brought an expert understanding of financial aid along with a deep knowledge of higher education to Enrollment Management at WSU. His insights and counsel have been a highlight of my short time here, and we wish him all the best in his new role at the University of Texas. Joy Scourey will provide excellent leadership and vision as our interim associate vice president, and I look forward to working with the SFS team to provide excellent service to our students and our community.”

Scourey began her career at WSU in 1995. Since 1998 she has coordinated athletic financial aid at WSU, and she’s managed several other programs and processes, including scholarship administration and packaging and disbursement of state, federal, and institutional funds.

A WSU alumnus, Scourey is looking forward to building on the collaborative partnerships with colleagues and departments across the WSU system and supporting the mission, vision, and goals critical to student success.
