Saturday, November 20th, 2010
Ali Barnard, assistant to the dean of the College of Architecture and Design, has been selected as the Staff Member of the Month for October 2010 by the Staff Recognition Committee of the Lawrence Tech Staff Senate.
Barnard is the first point of contact for all inquiries regarding Dean Glen LeRoy. She is also responsible for maintaining all personnel records for the College, preparation for and processing scheduling for meetings, travel and special events. She also provides support to department chairs, faculty and staff members.
She gathers statistical information for the annual ACSA report, prepares the ACSA directory, participates in marketing planning for the College, and assists with the Guide to Architecture Schools.
Ali Barnard received her Bachelor of Science in Business Management (BSBM) from Lawrence Technological University and will complete her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) this semester.
Ali was nominated for this award by Dan Faoro, interim chair of the Department of Architecture, who wrote of her, “Ali works incessantly to meet the broad demands of her position. She can be found answering emails at 9 p.m. and keeping meetings, appointments, conference calls and other emergencies when needed. Her dedication and commitment to the tasks issued by the University is rare and should inspire others. She even kept up on correspondence during her recent surgery and recovery period. She is a worthy candidate for recognition.”
The Staff Council recognizes full- and part-time Lawrence Tech staff each month for their outstanding contributions to the University. Nominees exhibit professionalism, dedication, and integrity in the workplace and excel in the performance of their work duties. Nominations are accepted at any time from any Lawrence Tech constituent (staff, faculty, or student) through the Staff Senate website .
