Josie Negro is September Employee of the Month

Josie Negro is described as the "consummate student advocate. She is generous with her time while assisting students with a variety of financial aid questions, and is always willing to lend a hand to colleagues. For these reasons and more, she has been selected as the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for September.

Josie's nominator says when she calls Josie for assistance, she can hear Josie's smile through the phone. "I know that anytime I refer a graduate student to her for financial aid information that they will have their questions answered," writes her nominator.

Her supervisor says Josie doesn't know the meaning of the word "no." She offers to help in any situation, and takes on additional duties to ensure students and staff receive excellent customer service. She is "always flexible and adapts easily to ever changing environments."
