Sandy Uhing named USD employee of month
The University of South Dakota is pleased to announce that Sandy Uhing, IdEA/Student Action Office (SAO) program assistant, was named Career Services Employee of the Month for April. Uhing received the award from President James W. Abbott at a gathering of Uhing's colleagues on April 4 in room 103 in Old Main.

Sarah Wittmuss, associate director of the IdEA Program and University Honors, nominated Uhing for the award. Co-nominators included Jacqueline Lonning, student action coordinator; Alex Berke, Americorps VISTA member and Jacy Fry, study abroad coordinator.

"I feel very honored to receive this award. Every one of my co-workers deserves this award and I accept it in honor of them also. I know our staff strives to ensure that every visitor to our office feels welcome and leaves well-served," said Uhing.

"Sandy's organizational skills have been a boon to the program. She is never one to say, ?I can't do that,' and is quick to say she can find and answer or use her creativity to find a solution. Sandy never gives the impression of being overwhelmed and handles everything with grace and ease. She really personifies the warmly welcoming part of USD and is a great representative of the campus," said Wittmuss.

"I enjoy my job. I love helping people solve problems and feel good about themselves," said Uhing.

Uhing lives with her husband and five children on a farm near Hartington, NE. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, supporting her children's activities and reading.
