Judy Fry named Employee of the Month

Judy Fry, who works in Forensic Science, has been named the Marshall University Employee of the Month for January, according to Michelle Brown Douglas, chair of the Employee of the Month Committee.

Employed since 2001, Fry was nominated by Jan Weece, who also works in Forensic Science. In her nomination, Weece wrote: "Judy assists with training at the MUFSC. She puts in additional hours to ensure attendees through various agencies traveling to the center have everything required for their travel accommodations. She explains our travel guidelines and assists in getting their expenses reimbursed in a timely and efficient manner. These individuals come from all over the United States and have included Puerto Rico and Malaysia. She makes everyone feel welcome to the center and ensures their travel settlements are handled in a timely manner."

And, the nomination continues, "Evaluations are provided back to the center regarding the training sessions and Judy's section only receives high praise. This shows her diligence to serving the university with excellent service skills. She treats visitors to the center as someone who has come into her personal home ? Many times she works more than the required 37.5 hours/week to accomplish her project goals for the needs of the MUFSC. She never hesitates to assist coworkers with projects or to lend a hand when others need assistance on their projects."

Weece says Fry takes great pride in her work and strives to add her personal touch to everything from adding table coverings and flowers to a reception table, to ensuring the accuracy of travel settlements. "Judy is not someone to sit back and watch others work; she jumps in with both feet planted on the ground looking to see what she can do and what needs attention."

Fry was presented with a plaque and a check for $100 by Stephen J. Kopp.
