ITS Spotlight: Ron South


In each issue of our ITS newsletter, we feature one of our amazing ITS team members. We learn more about Ron South with our Network Services & Telecommunications team in this segment.

What is your role and how long have you been in ITS at UTHSC? I am coming up on 2 years at UTHSC. I started off as a temporary employee assisting ITS with upgrading computers around the campus.  Officially I joined as a full-time employee in January 2020 in the Networking department.  Recently I have made the transition to the telecom department where I have been made the lead in rolling out a new cloud-based VoIP phone system.

What is a day in the life of Ron like? Lately, my full attention has been dedicated to the rollout of the new RingCentral unified communication solution to the campus.  This includes data collection, system design, and configuration.

What is your favorite thing about working at UTHSC? Without question, my favorite thing about working at UTHSC is the amazing people I have the privilege of working alongside.  I have never worked with so many kind and helpful people in my entire IT career.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? I met my wife while I was backpacking around the globe. I traveled between 15 countries over the course of a year before we met. We lived together in Morocco for over a year before returning together to Memphis.
