Staff Senate announces October U-Shine recipient

Staff Senate is proud to announce that the October U Shine Award recipient is Carol Drechsel from Institutional Research. She was nominated by Carmen Williams 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 Carmen had to say about Carol: "Carol is a person that radiates a positive attitude! She always displays a helpful, caring, and positive approach to whatever responsibilities she carries out. This last spring and summer, in addition to her regular job responsibilities, she has taken on re-doing the OIR website as well as the University Assessment website. While this huge undertaking might have intimidated others, Carol jumped in, learned the new web management system, and then proceeded to revamp all of our documents into the new format. I truly applaud Carol’s ever-so-positive attitude, innovative and creative style, and outstanding work ethic and feel she is ever so deserving of the U-Shine Award for her commitment to our campus.

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

Nominations must be received by the 15th of each month.
