Outstanding Service Award Recipient
Wendy Jo Larrivy
Wendy has earned the respect of all the students, faculty and staff members who she works with on the Executive Committee of the Campus Assembly. When in doubt, you can often hear the members say, “Ask Wendy…” Since Wendy has been at UMD, she has managed the financial side of many activities that are funneled through the Chancellor’s office, which means more to Wendy than tracking financial details, monitoring expenses, and paying bills. For example, when a budget line was set up for UMD’s Homecoming, Wendy joined the Homecoming Committee.
Since the Strategic Plan was established, Wendy has coordinated the financial transaction process for dispensing the Strategic Planning Initiative Grants. Wendy is the co-chair of the Campus Climate Unit Change team and she was an External Representative from UMD in the community-wide Unfair Campaign. Wendy is dedicated to UMD and is a huge ambassador for all that UMD offers its employees.
For her positive attitude, strong working relationship and extensive knowledge, I’m pleased to present Wendy with this Outstanding Service Award.
