EARL F. KAUFFMAN RECOGNITION DAY AND AWARD

Every Spring the Academy for Lifelong Learning holds a Remembrance Day to honor the memory of Dr. Earl F. Kauffman.  Dr. Kauffman was one of the individuals most responsible for the creation of the Academy for Lifelong Learning back in 1989.  (To learn more about Dr. Kauffman and the founding of the Academy for Lifelong Learning, please see our Early History document.)

Each year on Kauffman Remembrance Day an award is given in Dr. Kauffman's memory, to recognize a group or individual that has made significant contributions to the Academy.  This recognition has been given annually since 1992, just three years after the Academy's founding.

The Kauffman Luncheon is held in April and is funded via an endowment created by USCA Professor James Kauffman and his family in memory of his father.  All Academy members are sent invitations and are encouraged to attend.  An RSVP is required for event planning purposes.
