“In memory of Keith Klein,

I met Keith when he started at Ivy Tech, Bloomington in 2003. As I recall he was taking a marketing/outreach job. Over the following years, we developed a solid friendship. We had some interesting adventures. He was deeply concerned with the success of his students at Ivy Tech, his colleagues, and brothers in DeMolay. Keith was devoted to his wider community of Bloomington, IN, as he was very active too numerous activities to list here.

I will sorely miss you and may your rest in power.

I met Keith when he hired me as an adjunct at Ivy Tech Bloomington. He was a wonderful mentor and when I became full time he continued to mentor me and when he retired we changed places and I became Chair and he was an adjunct. He was a man dedicated to his students both at Ivy Tech and in the Monroe County school system. His greatest frustration was technology and I answered many SOS phone calls regarding online classes. He was a great mentor, dedicated to serve his students and community, but more than that he was a dear friend and I will miss him. RIP Keith, you will be missed. Jennifer Woodburn
