S. Lauth, October Employee of the Month

Employee of the Month
October 20, 2014

Sheryl Lauth, Supervisor of Multimedia Communications, Information Technology Services, is the recipient of the October Employee Recognition Award. Sheryl was nominated by Julie Holt, Professor of Anthropology.

“I have been teaching at SIUE since the fall of 2000, and in that time I have found Sheryl to be an invaluable support to both my teaching and my research. Sheryl is absolutely competent, reliable, and collegial. Sheryl demonstrates excellence in her overall work performance. I think it’s accurate to say that I could not do my research or my teaching without Sheryl’s help, and I know other faculty would agree with this statement. Or, I suppose we might get the work done, but it would look really bad! Sheryl is a tremendous asset to SIUE!”Sheryl Lauth, Supervisor of Multimedia Communications, Information Technology Services, is the recipient of the October Employee Recognition Award. Sheryl was nominated by Julie Holt, Professor of Anthropology.

“Ms. Lauth works closely with faculty to enhance classroom learning via media such as PowerPoint and Flash video, streaming audio and video, and tutorials. She supports students with expertise in wide format printing for posters and projects and video editing.

However, the most important service the Ms. Lauth provides to the SIUE community is her patience and kindness. One-on0one or in a group setting she blends technical expertise and interpersonal savvy to guide community members to achieve their project goals. She demonstrates excellence and never fails to go above and beyond. She is he first to volunteer to help in whatever capacity is needed. As a proud SIUE graduate, Sheryl Lauth exemplifies the core values of her University every day.”

Employee of the Month
September 9, 2014

Anne Hunter, Office Support Specialist, Library and Information Services Administration, is the recipient of the September Employee Recognition Award. Anne was nominated by Laura Scaturro, Business Administrative Associate, Library and Information Services Administration.

“Anne, an Office Support Specialist, has been with the university and a member of Library and Information Services Administrative team since June 2008, starting in the position of Office Support Assistant.

Anne has consistently shown excellence in her overall work performance, demonstrates integrity in her decisions and consistently maintains a positive and supportive attitude to those she serves. I believe her attention to detail, creative suggestions and initiative makes her an ideal candidate for this award.

Anne is deeply committed to the Library’s administrative operations and the services we provide. She is an excellent employee (punctual, cheerful, willing to pitch in) and eager to further her knowledge about the University procedures and processes to handle the various paperwork and transactions that filter through Administration. Although not in her job description, Anne recently took over the vacancy of AFSCME President and was elected to the Staff Senate in January 2014. She is also a member of the Safe Zone program. Her enthusiasm is evident as she learns more about SIUE and the wonderful benefits, tangible and intangible, that come along with employment at the University.”

-Laura Scaturro, Business Administrative Associate, LIS Administration

“Anne does a tremendous job when student work issues arise. If I ever have questions she either knows the answers off the top of her head or knows who to call to get the information I need. I know it’s not an easy thing to do as there are so many rues related to student employment. It is also my job to keep an eye on the building and report issues as they arise. I know Anne will call Facilities Management as soon as I make her aware of a problem and Stay with it until the problem is taken care of.”

-Michele Bigham, Library Operations Associate, Access Services

“I am honored to be chosen as SIUE Employee of the Month.  It is truly a pleasure to be a part of the SIUE community, and I am thankful to have such a wonderful group of people to work with.  I am grateful for the many opportunities to grow and share my talents over the years.  Lovejoy Library is like a second home to me, and it means so very much to know that my work has made a difference to those around me.  My sincere thanks go out to Laura Scaturro for nominating me, to Michele Bigham and Melanie Schoenborn for supporting the nomination, and to everyone in Library & Information Services for creating such a fantastic environment to work in every day.” 

-Anne Hunter, Office Support Specialist, LIS Administration
