Jenny Gilmore, Financial Coordinator for the College of Education and Human Sciences, is the most recent recipient of the Staff Star Award.

Her nominator said that Jenny brings an auditor's perspective to the CEHS business team. "She thinks about processes and procedures in a way that many do not, and can identify policy and process improvements. She does a fantastic job in asking the right questions at the right time so that college or university leadership fully think through the impact of policies or procedures."
