Linda Brown is June U-Shine recipient

Linda BrownStaff Senate is proud to announce that the June U-Shine Award recipient is Linda Brown, manager, resource management at the Energy and Environmental Research Center.

Linda was nominated by Sheryl Eicholtz-Landis, Manager, contracts and intellectual property at the EERC, and was presented with a check for $50 and a certificate by Staff Senate Vice President Diane Hillebrand.

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 was said about Linda: “My co-worker, Linda Brown, very generously offered to take a day of vacation and take me to and from a medical procedure that had to be rescheduled.  She previously had the procedure so was even more helpful in explaining what to expect both before and after. She was amazing, and I am so grateful to her. This surely is an example of both going above and beyond the call of duty and being an excellent team player!”

All UND staff members are eligible to receive this award. Nominations can be submitted through the Staff Senate web site at; forms are available at UND Facilities, Dining Services and the Memorial Union Post Office. Nominations must be received by the 15th of each month.
