Regensburger Named KU Employee of the Month for August

Oct. 4, 2017

Congratulations to Mike Regensburger, KUR, on being named KU Employee of the Month for August 2017.

Congratulations to Mike Regensburger, KUR, on being named KU Employee of the Month for August 2017. 

Mike's nomination from KU student Michael O'Mara reads like this:  

"Mike Regensburger, KU Graduate, Station Manager and Advisor of Kutztown University Radio, is the ideal balance of mentor, leader, friend and diplomatic disciplinarian. He teaches each student not how, but why they do what they do. Mike provides a haven to wayward students who feel they don't have an impact on their campus. His door is constantly open and his grin extends from ear to ear. His undisputed goal is simple: to help students reach their full potential. Mike Regensburger eagerly works with campus organizations and community staples to provide KU and its student body positive and consistent original, family-friendly programming.

His most recent work includes assisting the campus store promotion, KU's Veterans Center promotional plans, student government promotion, helping promising students find local internship and work opportunities and fighting for stipend student positions for KU Radio's General Members. Thanks to Mike Regensburger, I landed an internship this past summer at Reading's The People Chronicles, LLC. This internship counted as credit for my campus housing summer position, which also meant I had a place to live for the Summer WHILE being employed! If it wasn't for Mike's tireless efforts, I would've been homeless this summer. I will never be able to repay him for that. Mike is a university employee of over 14 years. Alumni flood his inbox and office doorway with stories, letters and admiration of how he helped them get to where they are today. Just last year KU Radio's Vice President Ben Wright filmed and produced an entire documentary about Mike honoring his 14- year dedication! Mike needs no thanks for his hard work- he loves what he does. He singlehandedly keeps an entire radio station afloat during the non-academic semesters and breaks, often doing the work of 10+ people a day. One could argue he does the same during academic semesters.

There is no one like Mike Regensburger on this campus. He is the ideal organizational leader. He is employee of every month and all year round for our radio station. It's time he's officially recognized for his vital and irreplaceable community impact."
