Community of Care

Kathy Meyer
Kathy Meyer, Office of Student Involvement, Associate Director of Student Activities

From the nomination:
"Kathy has also been instrumental in the development and support of serving some of the most vulnerable students here at the University of Louisville. Kathy was crucial in securing the gift from Commonwealth Credit Union to renovate the Cardinal Cupboard, the campus food panty that supports students, staff, and faculty. Through design, construction, renovation, and opening Kathy has been intentional and detail oriented to ensure that every aspect of the Cardinal Cupboard is meeting the needs of our users. The operations have continued to be refined through this first year of operating the new space. I cannot champion Kathy enough; I am appreciated of how she gives of herself wholeheartedly and sets high expectations for herself and others. Kathy does not only teach servant leadership, but she also models it every day."
