Employee of the MonthAnna Pavlik

February 2016

Anna Pavlik, Department Supervisor for The Cougar Store, MUC, is the recipient of the February Employee Recognition Award.  Anna was nominated by Jamie Matthews with support from Emily Colton, Ryann Heap, and Karen Swanner. 

It is with great excitement that I nominate Anna for the Employee of the Month Recognition Award. Anna exceeds all expectations put forth by her supervisor and other parts of the MUC Staff. Since Anna began in the Cougar Store, there has been a new feeling to the store. This is largely due to the initiative and creativity that Anna brings to her work. She thrives to make the Cougar Store a place that meets the varied needs, interests, and price points of all individuals of the SIUE community. Anna has helped enhance the image of the Cougar Store and the MUC, she has put the Cougar Store on the map in terms of social media.

-  Jamie Matthews, Assistant Director, Morris University Center.


Anna has excellent organizational skills and is creative, responsible, trustworthy, and cooperative. She pitches in wherever she is needed. She is well-liked and gets along well with managers, coworkers and students. She has an excellent rapport with student staff. She is quick to respond to communications from myself and others. She is a very good buyer and has brought in a wide variety of new SIUE clothing and gifts items which have increased our sales.

Thank you so much for selecting me as SIUE’s February Employee of the Month.  I would like to thank Jamie Matthews for the nomination and all of my wonderful co-workers and student workers. It is a joy to work in the Morris University Center, and I feel extremely lucky to be a part of such a great team serving the faculty, students and staff of SIUE. Thanks again!

Employee of the Month
June 10, 2015

D. Kries, January Employee of the Month

Wendy Cauley, Account Technician II in Accounts Payable is the recipient of the June Employee Recognition Award.  Wendy was nominated by Cat Yurkovich with support from Carolyn Catalano, Lori Huntley, Linda Jaworski-Moiles, Mary Rast, Pam Read, and Renee Seganfredo.

"We believe Ms. Cauley demonstrates excellence in all six categories of nomination criteria.

1.)     “Demonstrates excellence in overall work performance.”
Ms. Cauley is the auditor of all travel vouchers that faculty submit for reimbursement.  This task must prove to be very time-consuming.  However, Ms. Cauley is always happy to answer questions and is extremely punctual with her work. 

2.)    “Promotes positive morale through a congenial, supportive attitude and by providing service to others.”|
Ms. Cauley is quite possibly the most congenial person I have met at SIUE.  Her calming demeanor always leaves me with a very positive feeling after I speak with her.  As a travel voucher auditor, her role is to make corrections to the travel vouchers we submit as administrators, but her manner of bringing our attention to our mistakes makes us feel better – not worse – about the job we are doing.

3.)    “Puts forth an effort to improve self as well as to develop and recognize others.”
As stated above, Ms. Cauley volunteered to train me (and others I have spoken to) every aspect of completing a travel voucher.  Her knowledge and training have been invaluable, and continues to this day. 

4.)     “Exhibits initiative and creativity resulting in improved operation efficiency of the Department and/or University.”
Ms. Cauley has helped me through two “emergency” situations by providing alternative solutions to my concerns, whilst still staying within University guidelines.  Her demeanor and quick thinking helped to allay what otherwise would have been stressful situations and ultimately resulted in the best outcome for all parties involved.

5.)     “Enhances the image of the Department and/or University.”
Ms. Cauley’s excellent work ethic, attention to detail, and positive attitude, make her not only an asset to her particular department, but also reflect positively on SIUE as an employee of this institution.

6.)     “Exemplifies/demonstrates the SIUE values.”For all reasons stated above, Wendy Cauley demonstrates the qualities and excellence of SIUE’s mission."
-  Cat Yurkovich, Office Support Specialist, Department of Geography

"I feel truly honored to be selected as June Employee of the Month.  I would like to thank Cat Yurkovich for the nomination.  I would also like to thank the following for supporting my recommendation:  Carolyn Catalano, Lori Huntley, Linda Jaworski-Moiles, Mary Rast, Pam Read, Renee Seganfredo, and my Accounts Payable supervisor, Karen Kiser.  You all have made me feel really appreciated!  Working with travel has allowed me great opportunities to work with the University community.  Thank you very much!"
 -  Wendy Cauley, Account Tech II, Accounts Payable

Please join us in congratulating Wendy Cauley as the Employee of the Month on Wednesday, June 17thth at 2:00 pm in the Chancellor’s Conference Room; Room 3316.

Employee of the Month
May 2015 E. Coleman

Ethel Coleman, Assistant Program Director of Head Start/Early Head Start, is the recipient of the May Employee Recognition Award. 

For nineteen years Mrs. Coleman has demonstrated the dedication, work ethic, and expertise to ensure that the health, nutritional, educational, and family support services which the SIUE Head Start/Early Head Start Program provides to children and families throughout St. Clair County are of a quality that sets the bar for all Head Start Programs. Mrs. Coleman works tirelessly to improve program services to families while developing program staff; her invaluable mentorship and leadership during the annual program assessment, community assessment and strategic goal-setting process is instrumental in establishing SIUE Head Start as a highly regarded program locally as well as nationally. 

Through Mrs. Coleman’s leadership, SIUE Head Start has received numerous state, regional and national awards and recognitions received by staff as well as parents.  External honors the program has recently received through her leadership include the following:

  • The 2014 National Head Start Parent of the Year award;
  • The 2015 Regional Head Start Teacher of the Year award (8-state region); and
  • Formal approval by the Office of Head Start to lead professional development sessions for the Illinois Head Start Association.

This year, the first Head Start Center in Illinois to receive the Governor’s “gold circle of quality” rating was an SIUE Head Start Collaboration site – this is the area where Mrs. Coleman has direct oversight – this would not have been possible without Mrs. Coleman’s relentless pursuit of quality and collaboration.  

Despite all of this responsibility and high-stakes challenges, Mrs. Coleman maintains a collected and positive attitude that models a can-do tone for the rest of the program.  Mrs. Coleman represents the University and the SIUE Head Start/Early Head Start Program with poise and professionalism and is highly respected within the program and throughout the community.  At state and national conferences, SIUE Head Start is universally recognized as a leader in Head Start effectiveness and quality – this would not be possible without Mrs. Coleman’s contributions.  I state with confidence that the SIUE Head Start/Early Head Start Program would not be the acknowledged program of quality that it currently is without the contributions of Mrs. Ethel Coleman.
-  G. Lynnie Bailey, Director, SIUE Head Start/Early Head Start Program

I am honored to be chosen as SIUE Employee of the Month.  It is a pleasure to be a part of the SIUE community and the Head Start family.  I am thankful to have such a wonderful group of caring kind committed people with which to work.  I am grateful for the many opportunities to grow and learn and then share with center coordinators, teachers, community workers, home visitors, and all Head Start staff over the years.  SIUE Head Start/Early Head Start 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 are extended to Mrs. Lynnie Bailey for nominating me, to the Head Start administrative team for supporting the nomination, and to everyone at the East St. Louis Center for congratulating me.  Thank you again for creating a work environment suited just for me.
-Ethel Coleman, Assistant Program Director, SIUE Head Start/Early Head Start Program

Please join us in congratulating Ethel Coleman as the Employee of the Month on Thursday, May 28th at 4:00 pm in the conference room in Building C in East St. Louis.  You can also send Ethel a congratulatory email to

Employee of the Month
April 2015R. Woodson

Ryan Woodson, Building Service Worker in Campus Recreation, is the recipient of the April Employee Recognition Award. Ryan was nominated by Fred Thompson, Facilities Coordinator in Campus Recreation.

Ryan Woodson has exhibited exceptional work performance.  He manages to effectively maintain his assigned areas and responsibilities.  In addition, he has had to shoulder areas assigned to his fellow workers while they have been on vacation or other extended leaves off absence. On a couple of occasions for long periods of time, he has covered two-thirds of the facility and has been very effective in keeping the high standards we have grown to expect from our Building Service Worker team.   During those long stints of working shorthanded, Ryan has kept his same positive demeanor, took the extra work in stride, and was never heard uttering a negative word or showing a negative attitude. 

Ryan always has a ‘can do’ attitude and fosters a fantastic rapport with others.  He is always cordial and engaging with staff, students, members, guests and Facilities Management co-workers.  He is also responsible for the area of the building that serves as the venue for internal and external customers’ Special Events.  He is an integral part of keeping the building in a presentable state when parents, students, future students, members of the Student Fitness Center, and guests enter.  Participants of the Student Fitness Center often comment on how nice the building looks and the cleanliness of the facility; which is also supported by the Department’s 2014 User Satisfaction Survey responses in which our building received a 97.1% approval rating for the cleanliness of the building.  Ryan’s dedication to his position contributes greatly to our goal and motto here in Campus Recreation, which is to maintain ‘the cleanest building on Campus’.

Concurrent with Ryan’s strong work performance, he has also continued to be a part-time student; taking one or two classes each semester to progress toward his bachelor’s degree.  Ryan demonstrates great work ethic and integrity with very little supervision; and his performance demonstrates both excellence and personal development.
 -  Fred Thompson, Facilities Coordinator in Campus Recreation

Thank you to the entire CREC staff.  I appreciate the honor very much…GO COUGARS.
 -  Ryan Woodson, Building Service Manager, Campus Recreation 

Please join us in congratulating Ryan Woodson as the Employee of the Month on Tuesday, April 21th at 4:30 pm in the Student Fitness Center, Room 1527.

Employee of the MonthD. Kries, January Employee of the Month
March 13, 2015

Melanie Schoenborn, Bindery Manager in Library and Information Services (LIS), is the recipient of the March Employee Recognition Award. Melanie was nominated by Lynnette Fields, Director of Technical Services in Library and Information Services.

“Melanie has been with the University since 1987, and embodies all the qualities that make an outstanding SIUE employee.  She has an extremely strong work ethic, is conscientious, an excellent team member, and has been an integral part of LIS for the past 27 years.  In her capacity as the Bindery Manager, Melanie has supervised many student and graduate assistants over the years.  Her caring support and careful mentoring have started many of these students on the way to professional and personal success.  She is also a wonderful supporter of international students, not only assisting them with their studies and work, but also in their personal lives.  Many of her former students keep in touch years after they graduate.  Melanie has not only made a tremendous impact on LIS, she has made significant contributions to the University community.  She was a very active member of the Staff Senate for 16 years and chaired the Scholarship and Constitution and Bylaws committees.  I can’t imagine what it would be like not having Melanie in the department of LIS.”Information Services.
-  Lynnette Fields, Director of Technical Services, Library and Information Services

It is always nice to have your work appreciated and it is a great honor to be selected as March 2015 Employee of the Month.  I would like to thank Lynnette Fields who nominated me and the other librarians Mary Rose, Paul Anthony, and Steve Kerber for supporting my nomination.  I have been in Technical Services for 28 years and have been working the reference desk for some years now too. I work with a great team in Lovejoy Library and I’d like to thank my fellow Technical Services team members who work hard behind the scenes to keep all the materials flowing through Lovejoy.  I especially enjoy working with our graduate assistant and five student assistants keeping Lovejoy materials repaired and new materials processed. I appreciate this recognition and will enjoy working at SIUE for many years to come.
-  Melanie Schoenborn, Bindery Manager, Library and Information Services
