Donna Bodenheimer, administrative specialist and secretary to the associate head in the Department of English, received the Outstanding Academic Support award. Nominated by Misty Anderson and Tom Haddox, Donna is the backbone of the scheduling operations in the English department.
“Each semester is a complex jigsaw puzzle,” one nominator wrote. “Though many of the pieces appear to be the same, there is only one right place for each one. Donna gets all the pieces of the puzzle assembled.”
“I am impressed and humbled by her extraordinary kindness, her indefatigable efficiency, and her constant desire to be of service,” her supervisor wrote.
Donna, however, was not able to join us for the event due to being a vacation. Her colleague Judith Welch accepted the award on her behalf. Congratulations Donna on your well-deserved award!
