Staff Senate presents scholarships to staff members
In the December Staff meeting Staff Senate presented Mellissa Dionesotes and Olivia Causby their scholarship awards.
Mellissa Dionesotes - Recipient of the Staff Senate Scholarship
Mellissa is an Executive Assistant and has been working in the Center for Marine Science since 2008. She is also a research diver and her dream is to advance to a research position. This year she was also accepted into the Masters in Environmental Studies program. The upcoming spring semester she has an opportunity to advance her diving certification and this will allow her to pursue a graduate research project of her own. We want to congratulate Mellissa and wish her the best in fulfilling her dreams here at UNCW.
Olivia Causby - is an Administrative Associate in (Foreign Language) World Languages and Cultures
Olivia will be attending the 2nd annual International Conference on Communication and Management. It will be held in Athens, Greece May 9-12, 2016. Global experts will present on cultural communication, performance management, human resources, cross-cultural marketing, and multiple other fields relevant to her position. Knowledge of these practices will allow her to better assist faculty, students, and community members from different backgrounds. Congratulations Olivia and safe travels!
Beau Cummings - Development Director, Majors Gift (Advancement)
Beau will be attending The Spring Institute in Educational Fundraising April 18-22, 2016 in Loughborough, UK, at Loughborough University. Beau has the opportunity to attend this Fundraising conference then travel to Hertfordshire University to spend time with colleagues at a UNCW Partner institution. By understanding the perceptions of fundraising abroad and what influences other cultures to give back or not give back we can be better prepared to cultivate relationships with our growing international bas of graduates. Beau's purpose is to better understand the culture of Higher Education Philanthropy abroad. Congratulations Beau and safe travels!
