Lorna Baptiste came to the UFT 32 years ago and began a career that has grown over the years to become assistant director of the UFT Welfare Fund until her recent retirement. Serving as a member services representative at the fund, she distinguished herself early on as an incredible advocate for the union's members and, their dependents. The UFT Welfare Fund provides supplemental benefits to more than 300,000 people, and Baptiste has personally helped thousands of UFT members and their families. She is unstoppable when advocating for these members. All the staff, who often refer to her as the "resident mother, psychiatrist, and preacher", admire Baptiste's work ethic. Her goal is to see everyone in the world "do the right thing."
