Years of Service at Cal Poly: 1.5
Department:Financial Aid & Scholarships
Position: Financial Aid Processor
Why are you nominating this person? Why do you think he/she deserves the award?
Bettie was out of the office of 2 months, and even during this time she continued to worry and ask about the students and her work load. Upon her return to work, she jumped into a committee to set-up, test and implement a new scanning and verification process through the OnBase system. Not only did she learn the system quickly, she also played a big role in testing the system and provided helpful feedback with suggestions on improving the process. If that wasn’t enough, Bettie also helped train her colleagues. This is just one example of the many great things Bettie does throughout the year and of why I think she deserves the STAR award.

In what way(s) does this person enhance or contribute to the Cal Poly Pomona campus community?
Bettie comes in to work every day with a smile on her face and a friendly attitude. I have yet to see her mad, angry or grumpy, not towards me, not towards her peers, student assistants nor to the campus community we serve. In addition to her friendly personality, Bettie has a strong work ethic and works extra hard to ensure students receive their financial aid as soon as possible.
