In recognizing Caley, Johnson said, “The Admissions office sends more mail out than any other department on campus, and I appreciate that Karol is always so good about making sure everything possible is done to make my job easier. Karol is a diligent and faithful worker, and it is obvious how dedicated she is to Huntington University. Karol always has a smile on her face and a kind attitude. Karol has been an inspiration to me on a personal level through her updates to the campus on the adoption process of Allison. Karol is dutiful in seeking God’s will for her life and being patient for His timing. Huntington University is blessed to have Karol as an employee, and I have been blessed for knowing her.”
