Continuous Service Award

 

MaryLynn Garro

Mary Lynn Garro's efficiency expertise and calm demeanor provide a haven in a hectic School of Business and Economics office. Her knack for analyzing, improving and streamlining departmental processes, all while carrying out her usual duties in a fast paced environment that is punctuated by a steady stream of student visits, questions and needs has earned her the real appreciation of both her coworkers and the students she serves.

Her volunteered contributions have a broad span, from design efficiency to marketing improvements to technology. She has reformatted departmental forms so that they require less time for students to complete and the critical data is easier for staff to find. She also recognized the weakness in recruiting materials and redesigned them. MaryLynn even performed all the planning and research to support a funding proposal for digitally imaging all their student records.

That same dedication and initiative is evident in the other areas, as well. MaryLynn has volunteered to assist the Committee for Awards, Recognition, and Excellence in numerous ways. It was said of her volunteering that she, "does more work than what is expected of any given person on the committee."

MaryLynn's efficiency, positive demeanor, team spirit and customer support define the term "dedication," and I am pleased to present her with this award.
