Her contributions to our office will always be valued and remembered. Her six years of hard work and dedication to KU are worthy of admiration. Brenda will be greatly missed. We will be hosting a small reception in honor of Brenda 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 17, lobby, Student Recreation Center. There will be cake and light refreshments. Please feel free to stop by and wish Brenda the best as she embarks on her exciting new adventure.
