Long-time Employees Retire After More Than 100 Years of Combined Service
Four long-time employees recently retired from their posts in CSUCI's Operations Planning & Construction (OPC) division. All together, Bill and LuAnn Allen and Konrad and Vicky Kersten have more than 100 years of service at this facility.
Bill Allen began working at what was then the Camarillo State Hospital and Development Center in 1981. LuAnn Allen's service began in 1982. In 1998 both were hired by CSUCI and worked in the Physical Plant Management division, which is now known as OPC. Bill retired as the associate director of Engineering and prior to retirement, LuAnn was the assistant director of Operations Services. The couple began their retirement with a cruise in January and will visit family in February followed by a trip to Florida in March.
Vicky Kersten was hired by the University in 1998 and has managed the warehouse and handled all shipping and receiving responsibilities since the campus first opened. She had more than 30 years of state service when she retired. Her husband, Konrad, began working at the Camarillo State Hospital and Development Center in the late 1970s and retired from his role as a plumber in OPC's engineering department with more than 30 years of state service.
