Angie Jones, administrative support specialist in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, was honored for excellence at the Fall Semester Faculty and Staff meeting held September 7 in the College of Education Building. Jones manages the day-to-day operations of the department and has served in the role since 2014. According to Jones, she finds the relational opportunities with students, peers and faculty to be the most enjoyable and rewarding part of her role. One of her nominators had this to say, "Angie Jones is exactly what Appalachian State University wants in all employees. She shows up early, stays late, does whatever is needed to get the job done and all with a good attitude. Although she is great with faculty, her most valuable contribution is the relationships she establishes with our students. She goes out of her way to take care of our students. She is the person students rely on to help with any issue, to share good news and bad, and just to visit with when a kind word is needed."
Congratulations Angie on your well-deserved recognition!
