Following are excerpts from the nominations that served as the basis for Sandi’s selection as Employee of the Month:
“I would like to nominate Sandi Smith for employee of the month. Sandi handles all of the transcript evaluation/posting at WVUP which includes credits from other institutions, CLEP, credit-by-exam, ACE, and EDGE. Her tasks are very involved and performed "behind the scenes" so a lot of people do not understand the magnitude of her work load. She is always willing to help others and has excellent customer service skills. Sandi has been very involved with Staff Council and has served on various committees. She is currently serving on the Social Justice Committee and helps plan various campus activities. Sandi is an asset to the Admissions & Records Office and to WVU Parkersburg. She is a well deserving candidate of this honor.”
The Employee of the Month program is sponsored by the WVUP Staff Council.
