Three Isenberg Staffers Honored for Outstanding Performance

December 19, 2012

Outstanding staff award recipients Lynda Vassallo, Robin Baj and Becky Jerome with Dean Fuller.


Congratulations to Becky Jerome (Technology Support Services), Lynda Vassallo (Administrative Resources), and Robin Baj (Hospitality & Tourism Management), the first recipients of Isenberg's annual Outstanding Staff Awards. Nominated by fellow employees and chosen by a seven-member committee, the awardees received recognition at an all-school gathering on December 11. "Becky, Robin, and Lynda all bring a positive, can-do energy to Isenberg, welcoming challenges and problem solving," emphasized Associate Dean Jane Miller, a member of the selection committee.


Becky Jerome, noted Miller, earned high-points for her cheerful resourcefulness and prowess with both software and hardware. Robin Baj, (HTM's perennial bookkeeper) has been "the rock that's kept us together" in a decade of change, noted an advocate. And Lynda Vassallo has been the gold standard in meeting deadlines and anticipating challenges. As one faculty member observed: "Lynda has rescued us more times than all of the St. Bernards in Switzerland, combined."


While only three awards were given out, Isenberg is made up of many hard working and dedicated staff members. The award committee noted that they received so many glowing recommendations it was hard for them to narrow it down.
