Frostburg State University honored three outstanding employees, Beth Andrews, Michael Beeman and Colleen Stump, at its recent Fall Convocation. The annual Staff Awards for Excellence recognize outstanding service to the institution, and the recipients are nominated and chosen by their colleagues.
Beth Andrews was honored in the category of Nonexempt employee. An employee at FSU for 17 years, Andrews is the administrative assistant and box office manager for the Department of Theatre and Dance and Communication Studies. Andrews is known for coming up with ways to improve services, such as the new box office ticketing system. Students benefit from her eagerness to help them find financial aid and her assistance in writing letters and helping find community resources.
Michael Beeman was recognized under the Nonexempt employee/facilities/ maintenance category. A FSU employee for 15 years, he is known for going above and beyond the call of duty in the residence halls. Beeman cares a lot about his work and is constantly vigilant about the safety and comfort of FSU students living in the residence halls.
In the Exempt (salaried) employee category, Colleen Stump has been honored for her 30 years of dedication and support to the FSU community. Stump has served under various roles including the University’s first-ever graphic designer and Director of Publications. Her talents have been displayed on many committees including Strategic Planning, Enrollment Management and the Marketing and Branding Task Force. She is associate vice president for University Advancement, with the responsibility for communications and media relations. Her commitment goes beyond FSU to include contributing countless volunteer hours to her church and local organizations such as the YMCA and the Board of Education of Allegany County.
Recipients were given a plaque, a certificate commemorating their dedication and a monetary award. Staff Awards for Excellence are funded by the FSU Foundation Annual Fund Campaign.
