MOUNT VERNON — Three professors and one staff member have retired from Mount Vernon Nazarene University this year. All four individuals were honored during a chapel service on Wednesday. MVNU is grateful for their years of service and will be greatly missed by the School of Natural and Social Sciences, the Jetter School of Business, the Facilities Management Department, and the School of Arts and Humanities, respectively.

"The investment that you have made over these years into the lives of men and women that have crossed your path is significant, and for some of us, there is an eternal return on that investment. We're grateful for this opportunity to have you present so we can celebrate what you've done," said Joe Noonen, Vice President for Student Life and University Chaplain at MVNU.

Dr. Karen Doenges, Professor of Mathematics, has retired from her position after 25 years. Dr. Doenges previously spent 17 years in the public school system teaching French and mathematics. She has also participated in the Council of Christian Colleges and University (CCCU) "Women in Leadership" program.
