Melissa Brown, secretary of the Division of Education at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, has been selected by the Staff Council as the recipient of the 2015 fall semester Campus Kudos Award.

The nomination from Natalie Miller said, “Melissa is a super organized and creative person! Her background as a librarian and in teacher education puts her in a position of understanding needs before anyone asks. She has done a super job of organizing our office and helping faculty with their needs. Students are very comfortable approaching her and having fun, but also know when to tow the line when she requires it. She is taking classes to finish her degree. When she is away from the office, for illness or personal day, she will still check her emails and communicates with faculty and students when necessary. She and her husband are supportive fans of NWOSU programs and entertainment.”

Campus Kudos is a public acknowledgment created by the Northwestern Staff Council that applauds the efforts of eligible staff members who have displayed an act of kindness above their job responsibilities.

Other nominees for the 2015 fall semester were Fred Riggins, maintenance/telecommunications; Thomas McDow, campus police officer; Markangela Kinnett, secretary/health and safety assistant; Mark Fields, maintenance; and Ali (Kirtley) Gavitt, university relations specialist.

“We were excited to have so many qualified nominees for fall 2015,” Judy Dollar, Staff Council chair, said. “Each nominee was very deserving of the award, but only one person can be chosen.”

Nominees for Staff Campus Kudos are made by Northwestern employees including administration, faculty and staff. The nominees are presented to the Staff Council Committee for a final vote.There is no limit to how many times an employee can be nominated.

The next Campus Kudos award will be presented in early May to be the spring 2016 recipient. It will honor a Northwestern staff member who makes a difference at Northwestern, goes above and beyond their job expectations, is a team player, and has “Ranger Pride.”
