Kim, Executive Secretary, Office of the Vice Provost for Research

After 25 years in various roles at colleges in student affairs and advising, Kim experienced what she called "a shift."

She says Lehigh was fully supportive of her desire to move from student advising to an administrative role.

Today, as an executive secretary, Kim supports the goals and mission of the Office of Research. And she loves it. "I would have never imagined where I would have ended up when applying here to where I am now. And it’s been a beautiful thing, it’s been a beautiful ride.

Elias, Assistant Director of Information Systems, Development & Alumni Relations

When co-workers learned that Elias had to lie motionless in a hospital bed for weeks at a time as he awaited his heart transplant, they trekked to Philadelphia to keep him company and bring him distractions to pass the time. “It's an hour and 15 minutes away so they really had to make an effort to come see me and I appreciate that,” he said. “It was great to see people and feel normal.” 

“I got endless cards from people who couldn't make the trip. I got boxes of cards and nice cheer baskets sent to the hospital,” he recalled.

Roman, HVAC Technician, Facilities Services

Not long after joining Lehigh, Roman was crowned the best electrician in America at the IDEAL Elite Tradesmen National Championships.  "Some may think electrical is the same thing over and over again, but it's not. There are always differences even if you’re doing the same task. No two houses are wired exactly the same, our older buildings at Lehigh have structural challenges. I’m never bored. I could do this day and night."
