Congratulations to Kelsey Sims, office associate in the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies, for being selected as the August recipient of our Staff Star Award! Some of the things Kelsey’s nominators said about her are:
  • Kelsey’s work is beyond expectations. She is dependable, reliable and valuable. Besides her own responsibilities, she has also been covering the responsibilities of a staff member that had been on medical leave and another staff member who retired.
  • Along with going above and beyond the call of duty, Kelsey is the face of the CYAF office and the go to person for our faculty and students. She is always trying to find ways to help faculty, staff, and students. She is very personable and comfortable talking to and helping anyone who comes into our office.
  • Kelsey earnestly tries her best when there is a question that arises, including making however many phone calls she needs to get her answer. She is an excellent problem-solver and is tenacious, along with a good sense of humor--what a great combination
So, if you get a chance, stop by room 135 in Mabel Lee Hall and congratulate Kelsey. She is very deserving of this award!

Reminder: If you know of a staff member who you believe goes above and beyond their scope of duties, make sure and nominate them! Even if they do not receive the award the first time they are nominated, they can be nominated over and over again until they do. You can find the nomination form at go.unl.edu/3fs. Let’s show our staff how much they are appreciated!
