Outstanding Service Award Recipient
Students, faculty, and employers consistently comment on Mary’s outstanding performance. The picture that comes to mind is of a magician balancing numerous spinning plates in her day-to-day duties with Career Services. She serves as the chief liaison between the industrial recruiters and our students as she devotes time, energy and passion to helping every student she sees! Mary’s motivation is to make sure students have the knowledge and skills to conduct themselves professionally in all situations so they will be successful. When one student was having difficulty finding a job, Mary said, “There is a job for him! We just have to help him find it!” And by golly she did! The personal attention Mary gives to each recruiter contributes to their satisfaction in coming to UMD to successfully hire our students. One employer said “I have visited many Universities and attended numerous meetings with faculty and staff, none have topped the arrangements that Mary made for us at UMD.”
For her dedication to the Career Services Team, the collegiate units on whose behalf she works so tirelessly, and to the UMD campus as a whole, I’m pleased to present Mary with this Outstanding Service Award.
