SJU: Retirement Congratulations!

Four distinguished members of St. John’s University Faculty and Staff retire this month, and today was their farewell in Advent Church…

Presentations and speeches and songs and a prayer of blessing followed by lunch – the church was full of people and flowers and of course hundreds of cameras clicking away….

The longest-serving of the 4 is Andrew Chang, former president here in the days when it was known as St. John’s and St. Mary’s Institute of Technology – he’s been associated with this place for 40 years – in fact even longer if you count when he came here as a teenager on summer camps.  So his retirement really marks the end of an era….

Congratulations to all 4 ~ and wishing them all a long, happy and healthy retirement!

And check out the new cross on the back wall, it’s sort of on trial to see what we all think, a gift from Andrew Chang and his wife – great eh?!
