Fulvia Longstreet, assistant to the vice president of Student Affairs, received the Outstanding African American Female Award June 12 from the Ismid Temple No. 110 Shriners of Lexington.
The honor recognized Longstreet’s many contributions on campus as a longtime employee of Kentucky State University and as an active member of her community. Longstreet began her career at KSU two days after she graduated from high school in Paris, Ky. She has held many positions on campus, both administratively and as a student adviser and advocate. She has accompanied student groups on community service trips and on trips to games and events out of town. She acts as the Board of Regents secretary for the Student Affairs Committee and has received many awards for her service to the community.
Calling her Mama, the Shriners said Longstreet is “passionate about her work and is always willing to help anyone.”
Several of Longstreet’s co-workers, including Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Rubye Jones, Isadore Rich of the Center for Counseling and Career Placement and interim Chief of Police Stephanie Bastin attended the ceremony.
