Walker named USD employee of the month
The University of South Dakota is pleased to announce that Brenda Walker, secretary and receptionist in the Law School Faculty Suite, was named Career Services Employee of the Month for February. Walker received the award from President James W. Abbott at a gathering of Walker's colleagues and family on Feb. 5 at the Law School Student Lounge. Assistant Dean of the Law School Angela Ericson nominated Walker for the award.

"I am very surprised. This award was totally unexpected," said Walker.

"Brenda is a joy to work with. She has worked very hard at learning new things relevant to her position. There is no challenge that she is not willing to tackle. She is a great asset to the law school," said Sharon Wieman, Walker's supervisor at the law school.


Walker recently worked on a class composite project, which involved reviewing photographs of past law students and faculty. The class composite project was initiated by a request by Dean Barry Vickery and is showcased on the walls of the law school.

"Brenda did extraordinary work in piecing together pictures of graduates to create class composites. As a result, we have a complete as possible pictorial history of our extraordinary graduates," said Ericson.

"I like the people I work with. I enjoy my job and the fact that I get the summers off, and it's a nice place to work. With my summers off, it allows me to spend precious time with my children," said Walker. She has worked at the U for three years.

Walker currently lives in Vermillion with her husband, Rich, and their two children. Her hobbies include scrap booking and collecting antiques and cobalt blue glass.
