Chandler retires after 43 years

Peru, Nebraska – After 43 years at Peru State College, Yvonne Chandler retired on October 31, 2018. A small celebration was held for her on campus that day.

When asked what she enjoyed most about working at Peru State College, Chandler said, “All the people.”

Chandler started at Peru State in 1975 as a Computer Service Clerk II.  In 1980, she began her work as a Computer Operator and has acted in this capacity ever since.

She has been the smiling face of the computer services help desk and the welcoming voice to students, faculty and staff alike seeking a password reset or other computer help. Chandler has also been a dedicated member of Support Staff Senate.

“I’ve met so many people throughout the years and seeing them on and off campus is a joy. The people in computer services [and other staff] have always been superb, but I have also loved working with and getting to know the students.”

Chandler concluded, “I couldn’t have chosen a better place to work.”

Chandler and her husband, Darrell, live in Peru where they attend the Community Church.
