Frostburg State University’s April Baer Honored on The Daily Record’s 2011 VIP List
April Baer, coordinator for University Wellness at Frostburg State University, has been named to The Daily Record’s 2011 VIP list, which recognizes those who have become successful before the age of 40.
The Daily Record’s editors have chosen only 50 honorees from across the state to receive this award. The awards event was held on Sept. 26.
Dr. Jesse Ketterman, dean of students at FSU and previous honoree of the Daily Record’s 2010 VIP list, said, “April is truly a dedicated and hard-working professional concerned about our student body.”
“April Baer is an amazing individual who has made an impact in her professional community and is certainly someone to watch,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “We celebrate April’s accomplishments and hope that by telling her story, other young professionals will be inspired.”
In her association with University Wellness, Baer has engaged students in the CHILL (Creating Healthy, Informed, Lasting, Lifestyles) program in improving their health at all levels. CHILL includes preventative student health screenings, wellness promotion and the development of a variety of campuswide activities and educational outreach efforts that encourage exercise and nutrition. Through her grassroots efforts with CHILL, FSU was recently recognized by the American Heart Association as a Gold Standard Workplace winner. She also led the effort to make FSU a smoke-free campus. Baer holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees with honors from East Carolina University.
Dana Severance, director of Residence Life, said, “April has brought an amazing amount of energy, vision and professionalism to her position, and she is both respected and appreciated by students and staff alike.”
