For nine years, Julie worked as a program coordinator in the Office of Continuing Education, helping to drive the school’s continuing education initiatives, and always exemplifying the highest levels of dedication and teamwork.

In 2020, the school renamed the annual staff award to the Julie Kopfer Memorial Staff Member of the Year Award in her honor.
