The Staff Senate Member of the Month for April is Marilyn Wiseman, administrative assistant in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. She received nine glowing nominations recommending her for this recognition.
“Marilyn is an outstanding staff member who is kind, helpful, and hard-working,” wrote one nominator.
Another wrote, “She always keeps our department running smoothly. She is always there to help when asked, and often when NOT asked. She always goes above and beyond her duties to faculty and students.”
Wiseman has worked at Lawrence Tech for six years and moved to her current position after three months in the dean’s office of the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition to her ongoing responsibilities, she handles major events such as the interviewing process to fill faculty positions and hosting 40 high school students interested in game development. Currently she is handling the details for the department’s first faculty retreat.
Wiseman also handles many administrative tasks for Robofest and volunteers at the competition events on campus.
In announcing her selection the Staff Senate noted, “Marilyn’s nominations show she demonstrates dedication, commitment, and professionalism beyond normal job expectations, and motivation and commitment to team spirit by improving relations between and among staff, faculty, and students. For these reasons, we are very proud to honor her as the Staff Member of the Month for April 2014. Congratulations, Marilyn!”
