President Hawkinson and Linda Lantaff

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Congratulations to Linda Lantaff, director of Disability Services, on being named KU Employee of the Month for April 2019.

Lantaff’s nomination from a KU parent reads:

"Ms. Lantaff has consistently gone above and beyond what I would expect from any staff member at any university. She and the Office of Disability Services have not only met the needs of my daughter, but are consistently there whenever my daughter has needed anything.

Even prior to enrollment at Kutztown University, Ms. Lantaff took the time to meet with not only my daughter, but myself as well, and assured us that the Office of Disability Services would be her best direction. Although my daughter’s first semester at school had been a challenge, Ms. Lantaff consistently checked-in on her and made sure that if anything was needed, she was there to help. She even reached out when there was a problem with transportation and contacted multiple individuals to try to resolve the issue.

Ms. Lantaff goes above and beyond and deserves to be recognized.”

Nominations are collected from students, faculty and staff, and the Employee of the Month is selected by the Human Resources Advisory Council. A winner will be selected each month, and out of the 12 monthly winners one will be selected as Employee of the Year. The Employee of the Month will receive a plaque, reserved parking and a $100 monetary gift sponsored by President Hawkinson.
