The UNK Staff Senate Employee Recognition Committee announces Kristie Mosher as the UNK Employee of the Month for November 2001.
The Department of Physics, nominating Kristie Mosher as Employee of the Month, said that she is "the heart and soul of the department." Kristie has a strong affection for both “her” Department and “her” University. Some of her passionate loyalty to school and department lies in her being a UNK graduate. Her background in science and her Masters degree in Biology are strong evidence of the value she places on higher education.
It is Kristie’s nature to be a highly motivated teammate and leader. She is aware of everything concerning departmental business and obligations. The first week of each semester she directs new students through the labyrinth of the first floor of Bruner Hall. She also meets visiting students and their parents and escorts them to meet their faculty advisors. Even the excellent communicator, Kristie speaks out easily on issues of concern to students, staff and faculty. For example, before the start of asbestos removal on the fourth floor of Bruner Hall, she organized an informational meeting to address safety concerns. She went on to coordinate and disseminate daily reports that monitored asbestos levels during the two-week removal period.
Kristie Mosher’s friendliness and unfailing cheerfulness toward all make her the unofficial ombudsperson for the department. Kristie is a bright, energetic, willing worker. She accepts extra tasks outside of her job description with grace and completes them effectively. Creative and well organized in her approach to her job, Kristie is also possessed of excellent administrative and computer skills. She is very knowledgeable and efficient in terms of budgets related to the department and various types of grants.
Because she excels in all aspects of her job as secretary in the Physics Department, the University of Nebraska at Kearney is pleased to name Kristie Mosher its Employee of the Month for November 2001.
