Cumberlands Honors Retiree Lois Taylor

 


Williamsburg, Ky. – University of the Cumberlands (UC) honored Ms. Lois Taylor’s retirement at its 20th annual Faculty-Staff Dinner on April 19.

Since joining the staff of University of the Cumberlands in 1987, Lois Taylor has been a dedicated servant who has brought enthusiasm and love for college students in her work as office manager in Student Services. One of her favorite experiences includes working with student servers for UC functions. She also has assisted the University through her committee work as a member to the Grievance, Homecoming, Faculty/Staff Recognition, and Mt. Laurel committees.

One coworker commented, “When things get especially tough, Lois’ sense of humor can save the day. Often times that means being brave enough to say what everybody is thinking. However, at the heart of her work is a genuine love of students.”

Another colleague remarked that Lois “is always there to provide encouragement, insight and kind words to guide us on the right path.”

Ms. Taylor’s commitment to service is not limited to the UC campus. She has supported her church by teaching preschool children in Sunday school, helping with the children’s music program, and serving on committees.

Her plans for retirement include remaining in Williamsburg with her husband, Stan, and enjoying her hobbies of painting, reading, viewing movies, and traveling. Her desire is to always be part of Cumberlands whether through occasional work in Students Services or support of activities through her attendance.

Located in Williamsburg, KY, University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
