Although she had recruiters offering her higher salary elsewhere, Amy has shown commitment to her position because she truly loves the work.</p><p>She is the glue that holds us together. Her sense of humor and her genuine interest in what she does always spills over to motivate others. She is hard-working, and I never have to worry about her doing quality work. In fact, last year, our team recognized Amy with the "Fairy Godmother" award at the Student Development and Achievement end-of-year meeting. It speaks to how much she is loved by students and staff alike.</p><p>Amy is always working to better the environment of Learning Support Services. Amy's demeanor helps to create an efficient department which serves the greater CWU community through providing academic assistance to students in a comfortable environment. Amy's support is critical in the mission of Learning Support Services.</p><p>Amy comes into work each and every day with a positive, approachable attitude towards all of her employees and her boss. She is always here when she needs to be and is on top of her commitments. She makes her employees feel as though they can come to her whenever they need to. She makes us feel like we belong to something and that we are in a place with a lack of harsh judgement and criticism. Her responsibility, dedication, and enthusiasm towards her job is unparalleled by others and is deserving of an award to fully recognize that.</p><p align="center"><strong>Congratulations Amy!</strong></p><p align="center"><img alt="" src="/employee-council/sites/cts.cwu.edu.employee-council/files/images/September%20Amy%20B.%202b.JPG" style="width: 339px; height: 600px;"></p><p align="center"><img alt="" src="/employee-council/sites/cts.cwu.edu.employee-council/files/images/September%20Amy%20B.%201.JPG" style="width: 650px; height: 378px;"></p></p align="center"></p align="center"></p align="center">Congratulations, Lisa Broweleit, October 2017 Employee of the Month!http://www.cwu.edu/employee-council/node/2547Mon, 27 Nov 2017 14:31:45<p>Positive attitude and commitment; these two qualites were expressed by everyone who nominated Lisa for Employee of the Month.</p><p>Lisa has been a wonderful addition to the team, considering all the department changes over the past few years, including two extended periods without a secretary . She is very welcoming to our students, both current and prospective, all while learning the vast and specific world of aviation.</p><p>Lisa will stop what she is doing to help or to answer questions and always does so with a positive attitude and a smile.</p><p>Her experience and contacts on campus always lead her faculty in the right direction when assistance is needed and she has the disposition to firmly guide them when they occasionally attempt to do something outside of their normal duties. She goes out of her way to solve faculty problems and has been invaluable to the department Chair, who was hired from outside, by guiding him through multiple budgets and reports.</p><p>Lisa is well organized, punctual, takes her responsibilities seriously and is capable of making deadlines, all with a positive attitude in a work environment that is constantly changing and often chaotic.</p><p>Lisa is one of our strongest assets and is well deserving of this award.</p><p align="center"><strong>Congratulations Lisa!</strong></p><p align="center"><strong><img alt="" src="/employee-council/sites/cts.cwu.edu.employee-council/files/images/IMG_2345.jpg" style="width: 550px; height: 445px;"></strong></p><p align="center"><strong><img alt="" src="/employee-council/sites/cts.cwu.edu.employee-council/files/images/IMG_2352.jpg" style="width: 550px; height: 334px;"></strong></p></p align="center"></p align="center"></p align="center">Thank you, Hayley Harrell & Kelly Zakel-Larson!http://www.cwu.edu/employee-council/node/2544Thu, 03 Aug 2017 08:35:18<p>Thank you to Hayley Harrell and Kelly Zakel-Larson for their service on Employee Council last year!
