Excellent Eagle Employee: July 2016

Congratulations to Kate Wheeler, SAC's Excellent Eagle Employee for July!

In nominating Kate, her champion, Mary Beth Conrad, wrote:
"Kate is the Director of Advancement Services and in that role she is the key person responsible for all donations received by the University. Kate is an amazing wealth of knowledge and is always willing to share that knowledge and experience with newer employees, such as myself. Kate is the 'go to' person for anyone in University Advancement, Athletics, Theatre, etc. when it comes to assisting staff and donors with donations. When there are budget cuts or someone out on leave, Kate keeps plugging along and keeps everything running smoothly without complaint. Kate can do it all!"
If you would like to nominate someone for the Excellent Eagle Employee award, send an email to 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.
Coming in July!

The SAC is working with the Spotsylvania County School District for this year's "Back to School Drive". Boxes for donations will begin appearing on campus in mid-July.

This initiative helps children of all age groups and kids most in need succeed in school. Watch for the School Supply lists at Wal-Mart and other Back to School Stores and see what you can help donate.

More information will be available in July.
