She has served as a child services case worker as well as a probate court clerk in Ohio since graduation. She is currently pursuing an M.A. in Counseling from Marshall University.

“Our young ladies in the dorm have been blessed with extraordinary dorm moms who have led them to a closer walk with the Lord,” said Susan Forlines, Dean of Women. “As a student leader, Mrs. Lute was a team player who displayed a servant’s heart and a love for others. We expect her godly influence to continue the work of her predecessors—mentoring and serving the dorm women of Welch. We welcome her back to the Student Services team.”
Lute will begin her duties in July of this year.
