Co-Worker Kudos

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.


This month we are highlighting Yolanda Parker, Administrative Specialist - Administrative in the Department of Counseling & Psychological Services.

Yolanda is one of the most conscientious people I know. If you work with Yolanda, you know how meticulous she is. She goes above and beyond to ensure her work is accurate, complete, and timely. Our GRAs and PTIs are always so grateful to Yolanda for her attention to detail to their hire paperwork and tuition waivers and our faculty to their travel submissions; just to highlight a few of her responsibilities. I am constantly telling Yolanda that I couldn’t do my job without her. Yolanda’s attention to the budget detail is invaluable to me. Thank you Yolanda for being so wonderful to work with!
Please consider nominating yourself or a co-worker for the CEHD Staff Council! we will be sending out a call for nominations this month.

We invite you to participate in the
50 Years of Moving Lives Forward Service Challenge!
