Betty Lewis, Academic Advisor in the College of Education, has been named the Marshall University Employee of the Month for June, according to Michelle Brown Douglas, chair of the Employee of the Month Committee.
Employed for more than 25 years, she was nominated by Dr. Kathy Seelinger of Elementary/Secondary Education.
In her nomination, Seelinger wrote, “Betty Lewis is an amazing employee whose roster of strengths is largely responsible for the efficient functioning of the Student Services office in the College of Education. She efficiently processes an enormous variety of disparate forms dealing with admissions, transfers, incoming high school credits, permanent records, scheduling, probation/suspension, grade appeals and course reports. She also works directly with students and is the first person to respond when faculty need assistance or input. In every instance she brings to this job a meticulous attention to detail; Betty’s work is so consistently outstanding that I would be hard pressed to name a single occasion on which she was in error."
In addition, Seelinger said, “Betty’s work exceeds all expectations. You can find her at her desk long before 8 a.m. nearly every day as well as most days during her lunch time; during the most hectic and trying weeks of the term she even leaves campus with stacks of work that will invariably be impeccably completed by the following day … I know few other people on this campus—both faculty and classified staff—who are as competent and hard-working as she.”
Lewis was presented with a plaque and a check for $100 by President Stephen J. Kopp.
