Quotes from faculty/staff:
CAROLE DODGE, director of employee services
I am proud to say that I’ve been a part of the Lynn University family for over 8 years now. I can’t think of a better way to say ‘thank you’ to Lynn for the wonderful opportunities and experiences I have been lucky enough to be a part of than to give back through the annual fund. This place, and its people, are truly special.
SINDEE KERKER, associate professor
My job as a professor is to help the students realize their potential and to live out their dreams. I want the students to know that I support them both inside and outside of the classroom. I am especially impressed with the student athletes who face the difficult challenge of balancing academics with athletics.
That's why I donate to Lynn's Athletic Program- so the students know I am working with them every step of the way!
BRIAN SILLIQUINI, assistant chief
I give to Lynn because I want the students of today to experience the most they can out of their education.
ANGELA KAHAN, executive assistant
I give to Lynn University, because I believe in Lynn and its mission to enable students to learn and grow in ways that will best prepare them for future success in an ever changing world. As education reformer Horace Mann stated, “Education…beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of men – the balance wheel of the social machinery…” Lynn goes daily about the business of ensuring that equalization through providing the tools and environment for knowledge sharing and knowledge acquisition to students from all walks of life from all around the world. When I give to Lynn, in essence, I’m giving to the repository of human knowledge which grows infinitely as long as we continue to feed it through our investment in the growth of the human mind.
LORI KUKUCK, associate director of enrollment services
Giving back is something my parents taught me from an early age. It was how I was raised. It was something we did as a family. And for the past 16 years, Lynn University has been part of my family. I’m proud to say that I work at such an amazing institution with such dedicated individuals. Being able to give back in a small way is something I’m fortunate to be able to do. I see this quote from Eugene Lynn every day: “People forget how good it feels to give.” Mr. Lynn was right. Giving back is a wonderful feeling and doing so to help students further their education makes it all the more special.
LYNZE ROOS, head coach, volleyball
Investing in the people and place I work simply makes sense. I love the community at Lynn, and the opportunities I have had here have shaped my education and career. I believe in the values and mission of our campus, so it is an honor to be a part of the support system that makes it such a wonderful place to work!
MIKE PETROSKI, director of faculty development and academic assessment
I give because it matters.
STEPHANIE CANONICA, mail room clerk
Lynn means family. And as a family we take care of each other. That is one of the wonderful benefits of working here. I am also fortunate that my son has been able to attend Lynn for his degree. And a summer job! Knowing what Lynn has given me over the last 9 years it just feels right to give back!
MIKE PEREZ, women’s and men’s tennis head coach
"It feels great just to play a very small part in giving to the students and the university. It is self-serving in a way, because the university and our students have given back to me so much more than I ever could. The example set by so many of our donors inspires me to do my small part in this ever growing university. Giving becomes a good habit that I am sure will continue through the years."
