Congratulations to the February Employee of the Month Cynthia Beatty! She is the scholarship coordinator in the Office of Academic Programs.
Beatty’s nominators praised her work ethic noting that she “handles many complex financial systems for the college and administers scholarships for CALS students. She is great with details and performs this role with excellence. Her enthusiasm for students has also led her to increased roles in advising and administration. She is pleasant to work with, welcoming and enthusiastic, and shows genuine care for others in the unit.”
At the summer Board of Visitors meeting, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences was highlighted for their increased scholarship spending and the decrease in the number of scholarships identified as hard to award. This recognition was the result of her dedication to the college scholarship program. Beatty skillfully manages the college’s electronic scholarship application process. This year, she spearheaded a new scholarship initiative for the college: the funding of students for the Agriculture Future of America leadership program. She is eager to enhance her skill sets through professional development and implement new programs in the department. Her nominator praised her dedication, saying that it is “an honor and joy to work with Cindy. Everyday, she brings her best attitude and smile to the office, which rubs off on everyone.”
As the February Employee of the Month, Beatty will receive a plaque, gifts from the college, will have her photo displayed in the case in Hutcheson Hall, and will be eligible to be considered for the 2015-16 Employee of the Year award.
