Outstanding Service Awards 2006-2007

Geraldine Hughes
Continuous Service Award

In a notable demonstration of dedication, when Geraldine Hughes was hired in Political Science from Women’s Studies, she juggled positions in both departments. She provided administrative services to Women’s Studies until they could hire a replacement at the same time as her new department was about to conduct three promotion and tenure reviews, all starting from scratch and with a tight deadline. With tremendous professionalism, she kept everything running smoothly in both departments, and even went so far as coordinate the move and set up of the new Women’s Studies offices.

That same dedication and initiative is evident in the other services she has provided: offering technology and web-based assistance for courses, assisting in coordinating and supervising the editing of a book manuscript, preparing the North Shore Vision newsletter for Women’s Studies by providing editing, layout, printing, new design, and even writing a column.

Geraldine’s energies and dedication also extends to non-departmental areas, collecting donations and walking for the American Heart Association, as well as paddling for the UMD Bulldogs’ boat in the August 2006 Dragon-Boat Races.
