ELLENSBURG, WA, MARCH 30, 2012 -- EDIE FOWLER, OFFICE MANAGER, WAS NAMED THE JANUARY EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH AT CENTRAL WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY (CWU)
Edie is the Office Manager for two Departments: Physical Education, School & Public Health, and Nutrition, Exercise & Health Science. She works with six classified staff, 30 faculty, 20+ graduate teaching assistants, and five full-time non-tenure track faculty. To say her scheduling duties are intense is putting it mildly. Edie schedules classes for 11 individual programs, in over 7 buildings, and more than 400 classes per quarter. She is also responsible for scheduling professional travel within these 11 programs, setting itineraries and obtaining signatory authority on all forms.
Edie is particularly recognized for her positive personality, her "can-do" attitude, and her spirit of cooperation and collaboration. Many colleagues throughout these two departments commented on her skills, her collegiality, and her support.
