Happy Retirement to Ron Smith — LUM Program Director

Ron Smith, LUM program director, was recognized at a special reception by co-workers, LUM board directors, family and friends. Balloons, cake, speeches & even a song were offered as Ron turns the page on his seven-year involvement with LUM. At LUM, Ron directed Hunger Hike and Jubilee Christmas, and assisted with the tax preparation program & St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry.

Ron shared that his first paycheck came when he was 10 years old. He also stated “My many years of military service, employment at Purdue and various businesses, then here at LUM have been a wonderful way to spend a career.” He said that during his years at LUM he met many wonderful new friends who will continue to enrich his life for years to come. Thank you, Ron, for your hard work on behalf of the many children and families served here at LUM. Blessing to you!
