Meet our most recent PAWS award winner...
Megan Borders and Lynette Eisenbeck!
The PAWS (People Appreciate Wonderful Staff) Award is awarded each month to one staff employee who provides exceptional service to the UNM community. These employees exemplify University values and shows initiative outside of their job scope. The notice for March and April’s worthy recipients had been delayed while we worked out some new processes, but we assure you all that with your help (in the form of nominations) we are continuing to honor and recognize our hard-working staff!
The Staff Council is pleased to announce that the recipient of the PAWS Award for March 2019 is Megan Borders, and the recipient of the PAWS Award for April is Lynette Eisenbeck! Read below a snippet of why Megan and Lynette were chosen.
Megan Borders is the Events Planner for Anderson, and one of her many responsibilities is planning the annual Hall of Fame event. Megan spearheaded this event, and with her University values, she brought it back to campus in the UNM Student Union Building for the first time in over a decade. Through Megan’s leadership, the event was extremely successful. On March 7, we invited over 400 community and business leaders through the doors of the SUB and had an amazing event, where we honored six alumni and one faculty member, and raised over $180K for Anderson student scholarships.
Lynette Eisenbeck continually works far beyond her position by interfacing with multiple university offices to provide information, guidance and support to students, staff and faculty. She is also training office staff, learning new skills and promoting cross training within the office to keep all of the office needs covered during the transition and reorganization of the dept. Lynette’s main priorities are always the student’s success and faculty support in the many programs, which she provides with leadership, essential valuable programmatic knowledge and a commitment to excellent service. Her upbeat - can-do personality is always appreciated by everyone she interacts with and is often inspiring for others to achieve.
