Career Counselor Gale Kilbury thought she was on her way to a meeting when co-workers, friends and family ambushed her with the news she’d been named Employee of the Month for September 2010.
Kilbury had pen and paper in hand, ready for her meeting, when she walked into Conference Room G in the Public Affairs Center. A celebration was held in her honor featuring cake and other sweet treats.
“It’s a great job. I love it,” said Kilbury.
Kilbury started as an intern in the Career Development Center and worked her way up to a full-time employee.
“Working in the Career Development Center you get the opportunity to be there for all students and all alums. We’re not focused on any one group or any one person and I think that’s the beauty of what we do,” said Kilbury.
Tammy Craig, director of Career Services introduced Kilbury and presented her with the award.
“She has given to the university, she’s very student centered, everything is all about students,” said Craig.
As Employee of the Month, Kilbury was presented with a special parking spot for the month along with some extra spending cash on her i-card.
