NMU alumnus and past administrator dies

NMU alumnus and past administrator dies

A NMU alumnus and former Director of Housing and Residence Life died Sunday.

Carl Holm, 71, earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a Masters of Education in Counseling and Guidance from NMU.

Holm began his 42-year career at NMU in 1972 as the Resident Director of Halverson Hall and retired as the Director of Housing and Residence life in 2014.

After leaving Halverson in 1976, Holm served in several positions in the Dean of Students office until 1987. That year, two offices, the former Housing and Dining Services Office and the former Residence Life Office, were combined to create what is now known as the Housing and Residence Life Office. He served as Director of Housing and Residence Life for 27 years.

“He loved supporting his children and grandchildren, following their activities, and mentoring them whenever possible,” Holm’s obituary said. “He enjoyed spending time with his many friends, gardening, feeding wildlife in his backyard, reading about leadership and history, and riding his beloved Harley Davidson whenever possible.”
