     - From Kristin Muncy

A Shout Out to Deanna Carter, Debbie Miller and Megan Driver

A Shout Out to Mary Lynne Smith

“She's always so helpful, gives solid advice, makes great conversation, and overall adds a special spark to the OSAI office. I have known her since I started my career at JMU back in 2006 and I am sad to see her retire, but so thankful and blessed to have worked with her!”

     - From Candace Avalos 

A Shout Out to Anna Lehnen

“For an incredibly successful 'first ever' all UPB Retreat and a great assessment project underway! For loving coffee and for her positive attitude through this busy time of UPB interviews!”

A Shout Out to Shari Scofield

     - From Kristin Muncy

A Shout Out to Ritter Clevenger

“Ritter steps easily into helpful roles with a variety of University Union offices and makes it look effortless. Madison 4U no sooner mentioned interest in an on-line sign-up process for our Open Mic Night in TDU, then presto voila, Ritter makes it so. We are very grateful for his support for Union programming in TDU. He is a joy to work with and supports us consistently. Thanks Ritt!”

     - From Shari Scofield

“Because she is the best office manager and most amazing mom/grandmother/sister/daughter. We will miss her so much and I am so grateful for all she has taught me.”

“Bob helped to ensure that the OCL move went smoothly!”

     - From Lisa Mathews-Ailsworth

A Shout Out to Caitlin Landes

“She spent two days listening to my voice over and over and over when she was finalizing the Select Event Training Video. I'm surprised she didn't have nightmares of me following her and explaining how to submit a select event request!”

     - From Sue Burket

A Shout Out to Annette Liskey

“Annette is awesome because she provides excellent customer service to her colleagues of UU as well as students!”
