Skifstad was nominated by Matt Suwalski. Portions of her nomination follow:
“Since she began working, Shirin has done a great job of going above and beyond her position to form strong working relationships with colleagues across campus. Most notable, during Odyssey when we invite incoming students to campus Shirin was exceptional at answering question and helping Titan Central facilitate a new process this year to add a second camera station providing better service to our students. Because of the time requirements this was a large task and Shirin handled it perfectly.
“Debbie Gray Patton provided this support: “Shirin was an incredible addition to Odyssey. She made several changes that made the day start even more smoothly. She was always a helpful, problem-solver from the moment she arrived until she left, some 10+ hours later. She’s always thinking about what is in the best interests of the students and their guests. It’s always nice to work with someone who is always proactively looking at making things better.”
