Beverly Bunch is July EOM

Professor Beverly Bunch is an excellent example of Leadership lived. In addition to her work at the university--teaching, researching, chairing committees--she's also involved in the Springfield community. For these reasons, she has been selected as the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for July 2014.

According to her nominator, Professor Bunch contributes a great deal of her time to university service, applied research, and is quite dedicated to her students.  She also volunteers as a guide at the Lincoln Home National Historic site, and has been involved in community efforts to help the Springfield public schools with planning and finance. "Professor Bunch is a great example of our faculty who are engaged on campus, in their professions, and in the community, and who represent the spirit and actions of 'Leadership lived,'" writes her nominator.
