Staff Senate announces August U-Shine recipient

Staff Senate is proud to announce the August U Shine Award recipient is Nancy Nelson from Career Services. Nancy was nominated by Lynn Lee and was presented with a check for $50 and a certificate by Staff Senate President Kristi Swartz.

This award is presented monthly to a UND staff member who went out of his or her way to make UND a better place.

Here is an excerpt of what Lynn had to say about Nancy: "UND Engineering team won the NASA Joe Kosmo Excellence Award. As part of the award, the team received an invitation to the Kennedy launch in July. The financial travel award was not enough to cover every team member. Nancy jumped into action and made several calls and sent letters to various people on behalf of the students trying to secure funding for them. A private donor agreed to purchase the tickets for the remaining students. Not everyone would have gone the extra mile that Nancy went for these students."
