Author: Renee Ballenger
Seven retiring faculty and staff members of Southern Utah University were honored today at a luncheon on campus.
By request of past retirees, an intimate luncheon, as opposed to the big retirement banquets of the past, was conducted in honor of commendable service to fellow faculty and staff and students. Retirees and their spouses conversed over their meal about retirement plans, memories, and the future of SUU. They also will received a special gift of appreciation from the SUU administration.
President Bennion, along with other senior administration representatives, were on hand to reminisce and applaud the service to the Institution of these seven fine individuals. Together, they have provided 186 years of great contributions to SUU.
