After 16 and a half years as Office Associate for the Department of Educational Administration, Leadership, and Research, Carolyn Hunt has announced her retirement, effective December 31, 2014.
Carolyn is well-known to a generation of education administration students whom she supported with advising help, information, support, and friendly service.
“This job has kept me young,” she said. “I have most enjoyed helping students, and wish them all the very best and encourage them to continue their education and the good work they do with their students.”
Carolyn Hunt worked for 22 years in the insurance industry before coming to WKU, where she first served as office associate in the Department of Education Leadership, the predecessor to WKU’s current Departments of Counseling and Student Affairs and EALR. She estimates that over the years she worked with thousands of students and close to a hundred faculty members.
“Carolyn has been the glue that has held this department together through many transitions and program developments over the years,” said EALR department chair Dr. Marguerita DeSander. “She will be missed and we wish her all the best.”
Carolyn looks forward to spending time with her grandsons and volunteering in her church.
EALR students and alumni can send Carolyn congratulations and well wishes to her email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
