Randy Peaker is always helping people; if you are reading this, chances are he has helped you. Managing the front desk of the Office of Human Resource, Randy deals with nearly everyone at the university, something he really likes about his job. He is always busy working with the large, diverse university community, and his days are never boring.
Randy has been working with people and serving both his community and his country for a long time. A Viet-Nam veteran, Randy spent much of his 15 years in the military working with veterans, displaying a profound commitment to helping others. Today, he continues to volunteer at a veteran’s hospital a few times per month. When he isn’t working at TU or helping veterans, Randy devotes much of his time to serving his community. Always ready to lend a hand, he cuts grass and shovels snow for neighbors. Randy says that for him, helping out in his community is a great way to keep busy and get some exercise. His neighborhood association took notice.
As many people may already know, Randy Peaker was recently recognized for his services outside the community. The Hilled Road Improvement Association nominated Randy as one of “Baltimore’s Top Neighborhood Dads,” and he was honored during a special event with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Lt. Governor Anthony Brown. The ceremony recognized outstanding community citizens from different Baltimore neighborhoods. Randy was one of 25 honored at the special luncheon at Camden Yards, where he was presented with certificates from both Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Lt. Gov. Brown.
Congratulations, Randy, and thank you for your commitment to TU, the community and the country!
