Pam Soholt Retirement.jpgOctober 25, 2021

Current and former co-workers, family members, colleagues, and friends gathered to honor Pam Soholt on the occasion of her retirement from Mayville State University. An open house was held in the foyer of the Mayville State Campus Center on the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021. Pam is currently transitioning into retirement from her position as Mayville State Bookstore Director and will finish up her work at Mayville State Nov. 15.

Pam began her tenure at Mayville State in 1977 as an employee in the Business Office. She became director of the Bookstore in 1988, where she has provided excellent service not only to Mayville State students, faculty and staff, but also alumni and community members.

In recognizing Pam at a recent employee recognition dinner, Pam’s supervisor, MSU Vice President for Business Affairs Steve Bensen told Pam, “The MSU Bookstore has had continued financial success under your leadership. Your ability to make smart business decisions while serving the needs of the students and the campus community is admirable. As an employee and alumna, you have demonstrated your willingness to be very active in campus, alumni, and community events.”

Mayville State colleagues admire Pam for her ability to remember and recognize former students who return to campus for homecoming and various events and/or who participate in other Mayville State-sponsored activities. As a long-time employee, she has a familiar face and those alumni are delighted to reminisce with Pam about past and present happenings in their lives.

“On behalf of the Mayville State family, I thank Pam Soholt for her commitment to helping to make Mayville State University the best that it can be,” said Mayville State University President Dr. Brian Van Horn. “A 44-year employee and graduate of Mayville State, she bleeds Comet Blue. We are grateful to Pam for the outstanding personal service she has provided to members of the Mayville State family for so many years.”
