Venis Torge

Venis Torge retired from Miami University Hamilton Admission and Financial Aid Office in 2004 after 36 years. Venis was well-known around campus both on the tennis court and off. She was a great asset to the campus but also gave back to the community in many ways. Just one example of this is that, in 1996, as a CASA volunteer, she saw the need in many foster homes for financial assistance during the holiday season, so she helped begin Miami University's Classified Personnel Advisory Committee’s annual fundraiser that helps hundreds of local children during the holidays.  The project, which is celebrating its 18th anniversary this year, helps touch the lives of many children. The children learn that others care about them and are willing to help make their holidays special. Venis has done all this – and we haven’t even talked about her coaching career.
