Longtime director of student health services to retire

Baldwin City, Kan. — Ruth Sarna, director of student health services since 1989, has announced her plans to retire from Baker University at the end of the fall semester in December.Ruth Sarnaforweb

In 25 years at Baker, Sarna has served approximately 15,000 students and several faculty and staff members.

"She has treated each student with competence and caring," Baker President Pat Long said. "I hear Nurse Ruth stories often from our students and alumni, and when her name is mentioned it is always done with a smile. She has made countless hospital visits, and our parents rely on her compassionate nature to care for their sons and daughters."

On Sept. 17 at convocation, Sarna received the Piper Rainen Outstanding Staff Award. The honor recognizes and encourages extraordinary efforts of staff in their dealings with Baker students.

"She is a staff person who supports and goes above and beyond the realms of their job to help Baker students directly or indirectly through their efforts to make Baker University first in the hearts of the Baker student population," Long said.

In 2010, she received the national Ollie B. Moten Award, which recognizes American College Health Association members who have made a significant impact at their university.

Sarna spearheaded efforts for the Community Wellness Festival, a free health fair held annually since 2002 at the Collins Center on the Baldwin City campus. Seventy exhibitors and 300 people attend the event.

Brian Posler, executive vice president of academic affairs and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Cassy Bailey, dean of students, are working on a plan to best ensure the health-care needs of Baker students, Long said.
