March Employee of the Month
March 7, 2014
Jennettie Lierman, Office Support Specialist, University Marketing and Communications, is the recipient of the February Employee Recognition Award. Jennettie was nominated by Doug McIlhagga, Executive Director, University Marketing and Communications.
During Jennettie’s lengthy career at SIUE, Jennettie has created an almost legendary persona of cheerful, thoughtful, and attentive customer service. Jennettie has been a critical component of the Marketing & Communications. Throughout her career, Jennettie has accepted responsibilities above and beyond her station and tasks do not slip through cracks on her watch. She has been an invaluable resource keeping us organized.
Jennettie is the face and voice of our department, as she is generally the first individual with whom internal/external customers encounter. Her cheerfulness and excellent customer service personifies the “Connections Now” mentality that SIUE espouses. She is a “mom” to our student workers and grad assistants, and she continues those relationships with students after their graduation. She ensures that everyone is aware of our student alumni’s successes.
Jennettie is the epitome of SIUE values. She is committed to excellence with all departmental projects. Her integrity and honesty is unquestioned. She respects everyone equally, and she is always willing to share her knowledge and opinion.
~Doug McIlhagga, Executive Director, University Marketing and Communications
Jennettie has got to be the most cheerful, bubbly person within Marketing and Communications. I feel her love for people has always been a tremendous asset for our department. Her motherly nature has always helped bring everyone together, and she has been a true team player through and through. She has a very loving/caring nature that has shown through her work with managing our student workers. Her quirky ways has always helped provide some relief to all of those stressful days. Whether it’s pulling together the team to celebrate a job well done or managing a week’s worth of tasks on a days’ notice, she’s the person for the job.
~Jim Benhoff, Associate Director
Jennettie is one of the most genuine and dedicated individuals I have ever met. She cares deeply about her Marketing and Communications co-workers and is very supportive of all of our efforts. She will do whatever it takes to help us be successful. Jennettie is warm, caring and a die-hard Cougar fan!
~Beth Giese, Assistant Director
WOW! What a wonderful surprise and honor. Over the last ten years, I have learned and worked with award winning designers, writers, interactive media staff, campus photographers, students and GAs. It is amazing to be a part of what University Marketing and Communications has accomplished in the branding of our university which is now recognized around the world. Our university is no longer “the best kept secret”.
You are asking yourself, “Why is Jennettie holding the smiley face?” My smiley face was given to me because it looks like my smile. So I decorate the face with monthly holidays along with the SIUE headband.
Thank you to everyone that nominated me. It is a pleasure working with all of you. Retirement is a few months away. What a way to be recognized and finish up at SIUE. It’s always a great day to be a Cougar!
