Excellent Eagle Employee and Other SAC News

Staff Advisory Council Newsletter

The first Staff Advisory Council Newsletter should have hit your inbox yesterday! It will be sent to all staff monthly in hopes of keeping staff informed of University issues, events and plans that may impact staff and staff jobs.

Highlighting a couple of things from our newsletter:

Excellent Eagle Employee: April 2016
Congratulations to Dei Bayer as the Excellent Eagle Employee for April! The award for this honor is a designated parking space for the month.

In nominating Dei, her champion wrote: “Dei works tirelessly to keep the Talley Center running smoothly, functioning in multiple roles within this center. She is our office manager, meaning that she manages all purchasing, orders, coordinates travel, arranges trainings, makes arrangements for visiting professionals, and much more. She does all of this on a highly limited budget, using networking skills and frugal spending to get us all we need to run the office within the confines of few resources. She is also our only front office staff, meaning that she is the first point of contact for all incoming students, parents, faculty, staff, and community providers who reach out to the Talley Center for support or assistance. On top of this, she singlehandedly manages 11 to 12 different schedules simultaneously, keeping us all coordinated. She also helps to problem solve any IT or technical concerns, and keeps our systems up-to-date and sometimes outdated equipment running and functional. She routinely works longer than she has to getting all of this and more done for our center. For that, I feel that she deserves recognition!”

If you would like to nominate someone for the Excellent Eagle Employee award, 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.

Excellent Eagle Employee Dena Gray

Staff Advisory Council is proud to announce Dena Gray as the Excellent Eagle Employee for March.  The award for this honor is a designated parking space for the month.

Dei Bayer nominated Dena saying  “Dena Gray serves as the administrative assistant for AVP and Dean of Students Cedric Rucker.  With that said, she has her work cut out for her on a regular basis.  I nominate her as an “Excellent Eagle” as she works diligently daily to manage his already busy schedule as well as to set up emergency UMW BIT (Behavioral Intervention Team) meetings for students who are in need of immediate care and/or intervention.   She coordinates with the Talley Center, Campus Police and the student of concern to set these meetings in a moment’s notice.  She is always professional and courteous and deserves recognition for her attention to detail, coordination of services and ability to execute these many time-sensitive and critical meetings.”   

Congratulations, Dena!
