Staff Senate announces March "U Shine" award winner

UND Staff Senate announces the March “U Shine Award” recipient is Brian Wurzbacker. He was nominated by Char Bratvold and was presented with a check for $50 and a certificate by Staff Senate President Janice Hoffarth March 2.

This award is presented monthly to a UND staff member who went out of their way to make UND a better place. Here is an excerpt of what Char had to say about Brian:

“One Sunday night, a student was leaving Streibel Hall when she slipped and fell outside on the ice and could not get up. Brian saw her and went out to help her back on her feet. He then made sure she got to her car safely. This is a good example of U-Shine.”

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

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