ANNOUNCEMENTS

KEVIN SCHUKRAFT RETIREMENT
After many, many years of service, we didn’t think it would ever happen. Kevin Schukraft is retiring! His knowledge and generosity will be missed far and wide across campus, as well as his humor and contagious positive attitude. Please join us 2-4 p.m., Wednesday, June 16, at the College Hill Memorial Grove, between Stratton Administration Center and Old Main, to reminisce about all the things that Kevin has done to support and advance Kutztown University through the years - not to mention all the friendships made along the way. If weather does not cooperate that day, we will move the gathering to 317 Stratton Administration Center.
