Saint Leo University Honors Longtime Employees

August 22, 2013

On Tuesday, August 20, Saint Leo University celebrated Community Day, a biannual tradition that takes place before the start of each semester. The event was hosted by President Arthur F. Kirk, Jr., who delivered the State of the University address to the gathered crowd of faculty and staff.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Jeff Borden, vice president of instruction and academic strategy at Pearson, one of the world’s leading education companies. He offered a thought-provoking presentation about how students learn and how they can be best prepared for life after college.

Community Day concluded with the university honoring its employees who had reached milestones in their career at Saint Leo. A number of faculty and staff celebrated 5 years, 10 years, and 15 years, and were given service awards. Karen Hatfield, the university registrar, received special recognition after 35 years of service. She observed how much the institution has changed over the decades and thanked her colleagues for all their support.

Congratulations to Karen and all our employees for their service to Saint Leo University!
