Congratulations to Randolph Hare, the director of maintenance and operations in W&L's Facilities Management, who in July became the president of APPA International, the professional organization of facilities and physical plant officers at educational institutions.
Randolph has worked at W&L since 1971. He has served on a presidential search committee, on the Presidential Task Force on Women and as a Discrimination Policy Adviser. Randolph also has worked with faculty and board members in strategic planning for W&L and has helped to organize and assist with volunteer construction projects and disaster relief work.
Along with the presidency comes a glowing profile of Randolph in the September/October issue of Facilities Management Magazine.
He has been associated with APPA for more than 25 years, serving on the Information and Research Committee as a representative of SRAPPA (the Southeastern Region) from 2002 to 2006. He also served two terms as APPA's vice president for information and research.
APPA, now celebrating its 100th anniversary, sharpens its members' management and leadership skills, helps the institutions improve their environments, and recognizes the importance of facilities to the students, staff and faculty.
