Co-Worker Kudos

This month we are featuring Victoria Smalls, Assistant to the Dean, Dean's Office

Victoria is one of those unsung heroes in our college. She does so much behind the scenes for the CEHD. Have you ever noticed how she is the first one to greet you at an event being hosted by the Dean, or how lovely the food is or how nicely the room is arranged? Those are just a few things that she does for us. Thank you Victoria for all that you do. We really appreciate you!

Have you seen a co-worker do something great in your office, your floor or the college as a whole that supports a positive working environment? Take a moment to acknowledge them and we'll feature one of these colleagues each month.
