David T. Cowley, Utah State University’s vice president for business and finance, welcomed faculty, staff and guests to the university’s 20th annual Employee Recognition Luncheon Tuesday, March 19. USU President Stan Albrecht was the luncheon keynote speaker.

 

University employees were honored for years of service starting with those marking their tenth year. Honored in five-year increments, those with 35, 40 and 45 years of service where acknowledged with a short video reminiscence with “period” images. Seventeen individuals were included in the 35 and 40 year groups. One, faculty member William Furlong, was recognized for 45 years of service.

 

In addition, the university’s outstanding employees were recognized. Lynne Singleton received the Non-Exempt Employee of the Year Award and Melissa Scheaffer was named the Exempt Employee of the Year.

 

Singleton is the business manager in the Student Involvement and Leadership Center. She was also recognized for 15 years of service to the university. As part of her job duties, Singleton maintains all records for the state Independent Living Council office. Handling a budget of approximately $1.5 million, her nomination noted that she is “extremely organized in her work” and “always the go-to for all things financial.” Her citation also describes her as a valuable member of the student involvement team. “The attribute that sets Lynne apart is her passion for Utah State students,” the commendation concludes.

 

Scheaffer is the associate director in USU’s Career Services department. Her nomination calls her “a great asset to campus” — she has served on countless committees, including Robins Awards, GLBTA scholarships, Connections, Career Ladder, Business Marketing and with the Professional Employee Association. She has served USU from 24 years in various capacities, “all of which relating to teaching, guiding and helping others reach their full potential and to achieve their career and academic goals.” With humor, one nominator called her “the Grammar Queen” in the office. Another noted that USU’s mission statement speaks of being student-centered, “which is the source of Melissa’s actions.”
