Juvy Melton, business manager for the Department of Mathematics, received the Outstanding Financial Support award at our annual staff appreciation event. Nominated by Conrad Plaut and several other faculty and staff in the department, Juvy’s support includes advising faculty regarding compliance pre- and post-awards for dozens of proposals each year. She oversees payroll for 160 personnel in a wide variety of categories and expertly trained two staff members.
“Juvy seems to be available all the time to meet on the spot and will make every effort for a task to be completed even if it is during her time off or past business hours,” one nominator wrote.
“Her fine interpersonal skills allow her to get along with everybody and supervise the staff in a way that prevents conflict from arising,” another nominator wrote.
Congratulations Juvy on your well-deserved award!
