Staff Senate announces August U-Shine recipient

Staff Senate is proud to announce that the August U Shine Award recipient is Corrinne Kjelstrom from Campus Safety & Security. Corrinne was nominated by Jessica Dunphy 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 Jessica had to say about Corrinne: “Though this is my first time dealing with Corrinne, she definitely went out of her way to help me out. I called to ask her about a Certificate of Insurance for some of our cadets who were participating in an Honor Guard competition at an out-of-state university. Unfortunately, the information that she told me wasn't what I wanted to hear and the cadets needed to have this form in order to compete. Corrinne said that she would make a few phone calls and made many phone calls to find out if in fact, our cadets were still able to participate in this competition without the form. After about two hours of phone calls on her part and one happy ending, our cadets were able to participate in the competition, all thanks to Corrinne's dedication to UND. It was her loyalty and commitment that made the competition possible.”

All UND staff members are eligible to receive this award. Nominations can be submitted through the Staff Senate Website, or forms are available at UND Facilities, Dining Services and the Memorial Union Post Office.

Nominations must be received by the 15th of the month, and awards presented the first business day of the following month.
