Member of the Month Award.
Steven Stubbs, associate registrar, was selected for the month of April, and Kayla Mehalcik, office administrator of the English department, was the May honoree.
Stubbs was selected for his constant hard work and dedication to the students, staff, and faculty. He is known for being involved in each new student orientation (INTRO), and putting new students and parents at ease as they register for the first time.
The person who nominated him stated, "Steve goes above and beyond to help out whenever he can. He is truly here for the students, staff, and faculty. Anytime I have questions all I have to do is call and he is willing to help answer them."
Mehalcik was selected for the care and effort she continually gives to the English department and students. During her first six weeks of being the office administrator, she single-handedly kept the department running as she packed the largest department of the university, which hosts more than 100 faculty members, for the move during consolidation.
Mehalcik also helped a professor of the English department to the hospital when the professor was very ill and stayed overnight at the hospital with the professor. She arranged gift baskets and other help needed when the professor took medical leave.
As said by her nominator, "She has been a quick learner, and the department has come to depend on her for all sorts of help. Kayla works harder than most people I know, and she is a much-valued member of our department and university."
