Andrea Meckley named January’s Excellent Eagle Employee!

Congratulations to Andrea Meckley! Andrea is USC’s Excellent Eagle Employee for the month of January. Below is what James Pape, UMW Libraries’ access services and outreach librarian, had to say about Andrea:

“Andrea was instrumental in providing online resources to Faculty and Students during the Spring and Summer semesters of 2020. She was the direct contact for any issues dealing with accessibility of library resources in Canvas, and due to her dedication and continual physical presence on the UMW campus, users were able to access the resources they desperately needed through emailed scans, Canvas course pages, or physical copies of materials. To accomplish this is enough to warrant being given the Excellent Eagle; however, she has also transitioned to a new position within the library during July 2020 due to retirements, and has been able to skillfully navigate how to lend and borrow needed materials to and from other institutions from around the world during the pandemic. It takes a special person and co-worker to being able to not only take on new and more difficult role during a pandemic, but to do it with the professionalism and eagerness to improve is something special!”

Congratulations to Justina Jones! Justina is USC’s Excellent Eagle Employee for the month of November. Below is what Shelby Orlando had to say about Justina, UMW’s student employment coordinator:

“Justina has been a tremendous asset to the University. It has been a true pleasure working with her on all of our student hiring needs over the past couple of years. She is prompt in her replies, always kind, helpful, and accurate. In my seven years of hiring students at the University, she has been the absolute best to work with, and I truly appreciate her dedication and her willingness to assist student hiring managers. I know her role is monumental, but she doesn’t make it seem overwhelming. Thank you, Justina, for all you do!”

“Kenny is focused on creating an environment in which students are challenged and succeed while also meeting the many deadlines associated with producing theatre at UMW. He is always willing to do whatever is necessary to ensure that we fulfill our mission to our campus and regional communities and can be found in Klein Theatre long after the day has ended and on weekends leading to production openings. Kenny takes on projects beyond the scope of his day-to-day responsibilities because he recognizes that they will help us to reach the excellence we seek. He is always, always eager to help whoever needs him.”
