Mike Wengerd Retirement

Submitted by Mike Sword,

After 34 years of dedicated service to the Wooster Campus, Mike Wengerd is retiring, effective 10/31/2019.  Over the years, Mike has been dedicated and committed to the mission of our college.  In his most recent role as Assistant Manager of Farm Operations, he has been a key force in providing essential farm services to our faculty, students and staff. His ability to take on multiple tasks simultaneously while maintaining productivity sets a standard for how a service department approaches its responsibility. He has set the standard for reliability, consistency and execution.

Personally, Mike is a genuine good guy with a big heart. Many people, including colleagues and myself, rely on his friendship and mentorship which will be greatly missed. His thoughtfulness and positive attitude has provided a culture of stability that makes coming to work enjoyable. 

I will truly miss Mike’s experienced hand guiding the daily activities of our Farm Operations crew, but he is leaving us a legacy and foundation for continued growth and service. Thank you Mike!

Mike has humbly requested that we forego a reception in his honor.  But I encourage you to reach out and congratulate him on his retirement and thank him for his record of dedicated service. 

For the time being, please contact me directly for anything that you were contacting Mike about.
