Interim Director of Admissions Lori Giordano was completely caught off guard when her friends and co-workers surprised her with the news.
Giordano was recognized as October 2010 Employee of the Month during a ceremony on October 15, 2010 in University Hall.
“This is very much a surprise and of course I couldn’t do it without everyone here. They know I love them all,” said Giordano.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Tim Barnett praised Giordano on a job well done and presented her with the award.
“It’s long overdue. You’re highly respected and well regarded by staff and faculty around campus. You’ve really been the face of admissions for several years,” he said.
Giordano started working for UIS in February of 1998 as an Admissions Counselor. She worked her way up to Assistant Director, then Associate Director and now Interim Director.
