THANK YOU TO KU FAMILIA

KU familia, thank you to all who congratulated me on my retirement. As my journey here comes to an end, I reflect on my growth as a professional and an administrator. I was blessed to be mentored and taught by some of the finest most dedicated people I know. Thanks to the Office of the Dean of Students, my wonderful colleagues, Gina, Erica, Sue, Donavan and Mike Demetor, I will miss you all. God gave me the privilege to be a member of this awesome KU familia for nearly 15 years, and I count it as one of His most-richest blessings. You will always be in my heart and in my prayers. Hasta Luego, su servidora,.

PEACE-OUT; A FOND FAREWELL
I would like to thank everyone for all the fond wishes upon my retirement. Who could have expected 23 years ago when I started here as a temporary employee that I would someday be retiring from Kutztown University? I could not have asked for a better team of people to work and build memories with; I will miss you all.
     Jean Adam, Human Resources

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Thank you, one and all who came to my retirement party to wish me well. I have enjoyed working at Kutztown University for more than 24 years, and am very grateful for all of the friends I have made and the support from staff and faculty. I appreciate all the cards, gifts and of course, hugs. I will miss you all.
