Dordt University recognizes retiring faculty and staff

LeeAnn Moerman, executive administrative assistant to the president, and Gary De Vries, instructor of agriculture, are retiring at the end of the 2023-24 academic year.

A retirement open house will be held to recognize Dordt University faculty and staff members who are retiring. The event will take place on Friday, April 19, from 3-4 p.m. in the Campus Center at Dordt University. Refreshments will be served.

The open house will recognize the following individuals:

  • LeeAnn Moerman, executive administrative assistant to the president
  • Gary De Vries, instructor of agriculture

“We are so grateful for the 20 years that LeeAnn has faithfully served in the President’s Office,” says Sue Droog, executive director of human services and organizational development. “We have appreciated her professionalism, friendly spirit, and willingness to serve others in so many ways to provide them with the support, encouragement, and resources that they need.”

Of De Vries, Droog says that he has had a tremendous impact on Dordt’s agriculture department. “He brought a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and connections with him to Dordt and has been such a blessing to his colleagues and the many students he has taught and interacted with. Gary is always smiling, and we will miss his positive energy on campus.”

The Dordt community is thankful for the many ways that Moerman and De Vries have helped to shape the institution during their years of service.

“We wish them God’s richest blessing as they enjoy their retirements and continue to serve the Lord in new ways,” says Droog.
