Outstanding Service Award Recipient
Her department calls her “super sleuth” and describes her as “always professional and absolutely unflappable” but Sheila Autio is more than that to University Relations and Development. She is the creative team leader of one of our most creative teams.
The department notes that Sheila experiences no typical day or typical scenario but is able to think on her feet and provide quality service to a diverse group of customers. She is relied upon to serve in a variety of capacities and is the unit resource for answers. Despite a busy job, Sheila is also the ultimate volunteer, jumping in wherever she is needed.
Most employees in Darland – if not across campus – have enjoyed the school spirit shown by University Relations’ fun decorating. Her department notes that they have won several prizes for school spirit activities, all based on Sheila’s creative ideas. She is the team leader for these projects, often coordinating and shepherding them from concept through completion.
For her creativity, and commitment to school spirit and her unit, we are pleased to present this award to Sheila.
