Staff in the College of Arts and Sciences are critical to our ability to achieve success in our departments and across the college. On behalf of the college, Dean Theresa Lee is pleased to honor staff with awards for academic, financial, and technical support, as well as for teamwork.
Molly Green, administrative specialist II in the Department of Geography, received the academic support award. Green joined the department in July 2019 to help with the graduate program. She assists students from the application process through their academic career in the program.
“Being able to help students is one of my favorite parts of working for UT and working with faculty and other staff is my other favorite part,” said Green, who also appreciates the opportunities UT affords staff to sharpen their skillsets.
As noted by her nominator: “Consistently, Molly is praised by our unit for her friendly and supportive demeanor, her patience with highly detailed and time-consuming tasks, and the way she has bravely maintained a constant presence in the geography main office during the two years of the pandemic.”
“This honor was a very pleasant surprise to me – I have long known I am valued in my department, but it means a lot to receive recognition at such a level,” Green said. “I put my heart and soul into my work and it feels wonderful to be recognized for my contributions to UT and the UT Department of Geography.”
Dean Lee will honor the recipients of the 2022 College of Arts and Sciences staff awards during the Spring Fling event Tuesday, April 26 at 4 p.m.
