Kathy Fryman, Registration & Academic Records Data Coordinator, is the 2018 Roger H. Sublett Employee of the Year. The announcement was made at the annual staff service award luncheon on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

Kathy was nominated by her peers along with nine other employees for the award. She was voted by UI&U staff members as the Employee of the Year based on excellence in the performance of her job, embodiment of the UI&U PART values statement (serving UI&U with Professionalism, Accountability, Respect and Teamwork), and whose work and work ethic demonstrates a commitment to UI&U that is over and above normal job expectations.

Her nominee wrote this about Kathy.

“Kathy Fryman has been an integral part of the UIU team for over 10 years. Kathy always meets each stakeholder with professionalism, respect and personalizes the experience with a smile. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes sure that when she interacts with other coworkers that she shares the knowledge so that all can be educated about how to deliver the best service to make the behind the scenes work move smoothly.

To me she exemplifies Union’s commitment to doing right by the student even if it means more work for the staff; at the same time she adheres to our guidelines for accountability not just from obedience but from the deeper understanding that this protects the students and the university. In addition she enhances her mix of professionalism and dedication with a touch of well-placed humor that builds the sort of intra-university relationships that are key at a small organization like Union.”
