Three University of North Georgia employees on the Dahlonega campus have been selected as Staff Member of the Month winners by the campus Staff Council.
Terrence Holeman, quartermaster in the UNG bookstore, was chosen for January; Sue White, office administrator for Student Health Services, was the February honoree; and Jessica Brown, assistant director of Recreational Sports, was the March winner.
Holeman's nomination lauded his efforts to provide new uniforms for the Department of Public Safety and other university divisions and departments in the wake of consolidation. Holeman had to size each officer to insure they received the best fitting uniform, taking time to size 37 officers with varying schedules on different campuses. He was under pressure to complete the task in a very short time period; and he accomplished it.

Sue White, Staff Member of the Month for February.
White was nominated for her resourcefulness and caring attitude, especially when it comes to students. In addition to helping her family, White takes care of many tasks at Student Health Services, from cleaning and cooking to triaging patients. She goes out of her way to help students that visit Student Health Services. She just genuinely cares for others and it comes across in everything she does, even answering the phones, according to the nomination.

Staff Member of the Month for March.
Brown's nomination detailed her dedication to helping students and colleagues and her "fierce" dedication to the university. She often goes above and beyond her job duties to make the students' experience better. Brown gives more than 100 percent to all her assigned and volunteer duties and embodies the core value of service for UNG.
