17 UNCG Staff Stars

Photo of Chancellor Brady, Tom Baxter and John Foreman“Random acts of kindness” and “other duties as assigned” were two phrases Chancellor Brady referenced as she spoke at the Fall 2013 UNCG Staff Stars presentation.

They both speak to what many UNCG staff members do each day – doing more with less and being kind and supportive as they go about their day.

People are proactive at UNCG, she noted, not waiting for an assignment.

What she sees in many of the nominations for Staff Stars, she explained, is ‘_____ stepped up to help out.”

“We are understaffed – woefully understaffed,” she said. “That people are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to help a colleague” says a lot, she explained.

Staff Stars awards are “one way to celebrate what goes on in support of our students and faculty.”
