During the staff assembly on Thursday, President Dottie L. King, Ph.D., presented the Outstanding Staff Award for Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College to the 2021 fall recipient, Angie McMillin ’13. McMillin, the equine facilities manager, who has worked at SMWC for more than 20 years, will receive a framed certificate, $100, two personal days and a parking spot of her choice for the next six months.
The award goes to a staff member who demonstrates job knowledge and skill above and beyond normal responsibilities, displays respect and enthusiasm toward colleagues, students and alumni, provides excellent customer service, demonstrates creativity and innovative thinking in meeting challenges, and actively participates in college activities outside of their regular job.
“This fall’s Outstanding Staff honoree exemplifies all these qualities,” begins the award letter from the selection committee. It goes on, “She is always in a good mood and greets everyone with a smile. We are fortunate to have such an engaging, caring, and motivated staff member. It is inspiring to see a staff member setting such a standard for all of us to hold ourselves to.”
