Excellent Eagle Employee and SAC News

Congratulations to Jean Elliott, SAC’s Excellent Eagle Employee for November 2016!

In nominating Jean, her champion, Pam Verbeck, wrote: “I would like to nominate Jean Elliott, Parking Management Supervisor, for the Excellent Eagle award.  I received a phone call today from a 66-year old adult full-time student who wanted to let people know how Jean Elliott went above and beyond the call of duty to help her this week.  She has a leg injury and was having extreme pain and difficulty trying to get back and forth to her classes from the George Washington lot.  On short notice, Jean picked the student up and delivered her to her class, and then made special arrangements for her and added an additional reserved spot close to the student’s classes.”

To nominate your co-workers, supervisor, or employees for the Excellent Eagle Employee award, simply send an email to eenominations@umw.edu with Excellent Eagle Employee in the subject line. Be sure to provide the person’s name, department, and work location with the most convenient parking lot, and the reason they should be recognized.
