for six years, Hammersmith was an invaluable part of the
University. He served on multiple committees during his time
on the Board and showed unwavering support of education
and the mission of IU Southeast.
His commitment to the Southern Indiana community was
evident in his work with the New Albany-Floyd County Parks
Board, Harvest Homecoming, One Southern Indiana, and
the Carnegie Center for Art and History. Hammersmith was
employed by Duke Energy as a regional manager, and he was
an alumnus of Purdue University.
“Kevin’s love for IU Southeast and its students was
continuously apparent in his attendance at and support for
a wide range of campus activities, as well as his advocacy
for the University and its people,” IU Southeast Chancellor
Sandra Patterson-Randles said. “We will truly miss Kevin’s
smiling face, upbeat attitude, community commitment, and
solid contributions to Southern Indiana’s progress.”
