Karla Wenger loves to put on her detective hat and solve problems.
For the past 50 years, the administrative assistant in Graduate Studies has put those solution-focused skills to work. By combining her wealth of institutional knowledge with her ability to connect with people, she has served MSUM’s faculty, administrators and students well.
“I feel like I’m good at what I do and that I contribute to the university,” she says. “I’ve been blessed with some nice, wonderful people to work with.”
Wenger retires this summer and when she does, she’ll leave a career that witnessed two institutional name changes, four university presidents, nine bosses and decades of friendships. She will be deeply missed.
