I am proud to have been elected President of the Women’s Club at UCF for the 2022-2023 term. As I look over the list of past presidents I am in awe of their leadership and hope that I can be as effective as they have been. It is an honor to serve on the Board with other elected officers, Karen Manglardi, Zalpha Hashem and Cathy Davis, and with the appointed committee chairs.
A little about my background: My profession is Nursing and I have held positions as an RN in practice, administration, consultation, and education throughout the country. My affiliation with UCF began in 1989 when I joined the Nursing School faculty. Over the years, in a variety of teaching and administrative positions, I contributed to program expansion and student enrollment. After 26 rewarding years, I retired in 2016 as an Associate Dean. My current volunteer activities include the College of Nursing student learning labs and the Veteran’s Memorial Hospital Community Living Center at Lake Nona.
I became a member of the Women’s Club at UCF in 2016 and have previously served on the Board as Secretary and Vice President. I currently also have fun leading one of the club’s Interest Groups, Armchair’s Travelers 2. My fun activities involve worldwide travel, cruising, and ballroom dancing.
The Women’s Club at UCF is an organization of incredibly talented and dynamic women. It has a strong history of supporting UCF’s goals, awarding scholarships to non-traditional students, and providing opportunities for members to share interests and develop long lasting friendships. As we move forward, I will be calling on members to step up and stand out. I am interested in your feedback as to how we can make this club even better. Please email me at Lmhennig@cs.com or call at 407-325-8295 to let me know your thoughts.
Here is to a great year!
