Gene Engelhardt, a former Lindbergh Board of Education member and district administrator, will be honored at the annual “Ageless-Remarkable St. Louisans” gala on Nov. 11.

Engelhardt and 25 other honorees are being recognized for their integrity, commitment, expertise, vitality and generosity to the St. Louis community.

The gala is sponsored by St. Andrew’s Re-sources for Seniors.

The event will highlight each honoree’s passion for remaining young at heart and staying active well into their golden years.

“Each year, we continue to be amazed with the incredible lives of our Ageless-Remarkable St. Louisans,” Mary Alice Ryan, president and chief executive officer of St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors, stated in a news release. “They are living proof that age is truly nothing more than a number, and we are honored to have the chance to recognize them for their countless contributions on the job front and in the community, and for their desire and commitment to living life to the fullest at any age.”

With a career in education that has spanned 65 years, Engelhardt, who holds a doctorate degree, now uses his wealth of experience in the field to instruct graduate classes in education for Truman State University. He also is a decades-long Kiwanis member who helps to organize new chapters and recruit new members.
