Paula Kerkhove to retire

Paula Kerkhove
After 14 years of service, Paula Kerkhove will be retiring from the school on December 31.

Paula has been the secretary for the school’s director of development since 1998;  first under Nan Ross, and then subsequently for Tim Bobillo, Eric Gentry, Nathan Wight, Diane Klassen and most recently, Rita Baines.

Paula was awarded the Customer Service Award in the College of Engineering Awards of Excellence in fall 2007. This award was initiated in 2002 to honor outstanding faculty and administrative, professional, clerical and service staff. She was nominated by the then head of school Dr. Thomas N. Farris. During the Award ceremony, Paula was commended for her generosity, hospitality and determination.

Paula is the key member who among other things, organizes the Outstanding Aerospace Engineers Award banquet and makes the school’s alumni relations function smoothly. We wish Paula best wishes on her retirement
