Tami Kuhn served in the college union field for nearly 30 years, which began in student life and activities offices, and evolved into serving as the manager of the Michigan State Union. Through this time, she has been a consistent volunteer across all levels, and with her career path recently transitioning to work within human resources, Kuhn shared the following sentiments:
“ACUI has been nothing but a blessing in my life. I have met so many wonderful people through ACUI and learned so much from all of them. I even learned that Wolverines can be great friends and colleagues (GO GREEN!). I can remember sitting at my first conference thinking what a remarkable group of professionals were assembled in that ballroom for the final dinner. All of the people there cared so much about students and their success! But they also nurtured each other in so many ways. I mean, if you are a hugger like me, you just fell into clover!
"I want to thank Michigan State University for giving me space to be a member of the ACUI community. I’ve been on regional and annual Conference Planning Committees, the Education and Research Fund Team, several special projects, and the Education Council. In each of these opportunities, I believe that I learned much more than I contributed. ACUI is the best of both worlds—a personal and professional heaven. I wish I could name all the people who have become friends, mentors, and colleagues. You are all wonderful and what makes ACUI what it is.
Thank you for this honor, and I’ll see you soon!”
