1st Quarter - Cindy Moulton

Cindy Moulton has worked at USU for 30 years! That deserves an award all by itself!  She’s currently a Staff Assistant in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and has been in this department for 6 ½ years, after spending almost 24 years in the Registrar’s Office.  

In her nomination, her co-workers emphasized how hardworking and conscientious she is. She is very reliable, never late, and tries very hard to answer any and all questions anyone has for her!  She spends most of her day working with graduate students – answering their questions and going out of her way to help them out with whatever they need.  She also maintains a very friendly relationship with the grad students and they often feel comfortable just stopping by to chat.  She always has a smile on her face and is a joy to work with.

She grew up here in the valley and has two children, a son and a daughter, and they are both proud Aggie alums.  She has four wonderful grandchildren, two boys and two girls, and says they are the best things ever!  Her husband also graduated from USU and works as a computer consultant.  She loves spending time with her grandchildren and working in her yard.  She enjoys her job and loves the graduate students she gets to work with every day.

Congratulations Cindy! 

2nd Quarter - Chenese Boyle

Chenese Boyle grew up in Fielding, Utah and migrated her way to Logan after graduating high school.  Before working at Utah State University she was a supervisor for a research company for eight years. She has worked at USU for 5 ½ years in the Registrar’s Office. She started in academic scheduling and this past summer she jumped over to the Articulation train!

In her nominations people emphasized her dependability, knowledge, and personality. She received nominations from her colleagues, supervisors, offices around campus, and even students! She does an excellent job doing a very complex job and works well with everyone she serves and everyone she works with. She is also willing to do whatever is needed and will jump into whatever she is asked to do. She listens to what people are saying and is always very helpful and positive.

She is married and has two amazing children. She is currently working on my bachelor’s degree in FCHD and hopes to graduate Spring 2015. Working with two kids is no easy feat! In between work and juggling school she likes to spend as much time as she can with her family.

Congratulations Chenese!

3rd  Quarter - Valerie Donohoe

Valerie Donohoe was born and raised in Weston, Idaho (Cache Valley), where she graduated as her high school Valedictorian. She was a Legal Secretary for several law firms in Utah and Idaho and worked for many Idaho Government Offices for nearly 30 years before coming to Utah State. During this time she would take breaks periodically to raise a family and be with her husband while he served in the military. She got to live in Europe for nearly 4 years, Hawaii for 3.5 years, and many other states throughout the United States!

She began working at Utah State University in 2006 as the Senior Staff Assistant to the Vice-Provost over Regional Campuses then became the Business Manager and Assistant to the Department Head for Communicative Disorders in 2007, which is where she has settled in.

In her nominations from peers and supervisors they emphasize her productivity, dependability, reliability, and knowledge. They also mention whenever there is a clerical or administrative problem, Valerie has the answer and is more than willing to go the extra mile in assuring that the problem is solved. Additionally, during her tenure, she has supervised a number of unanticipated changes including facility additions and moves, been critically important in the hiring of Staff Assistants and Academic Advisors to support front office, clinics, and the large distance learning program, and guided the development of business and office policies and procedures. Through all of the changes and work interruptions Valerie has maintained her professionalism, her sense of humor and her willingness to go the extra mile to cause the least disruption to faculty and staff. They say she is clever, innovative, creative, and an integral part of their department. Sounds like someone I would want to work with!

Valerie has 4 children, and when she combines that with her husband’s 5 children it becomes craziness! She loves scuba-diving (but not particularly sky diving), being in the mountains, family and friends. When talking about Utah State, she says “USU is my father’s alma mater; Cache Valley is coming home for me”.

Congratulations Valerie!
