Nomination Essay

It is my honor to nominate Melissa Stein to become an active member of UMUC's Adelphi Staff Advisory Council (ASAC). Melissa represents the leadership, professionalism and critical thinking skills that are needed to be successful council member. Melissa began her journey with UMUC in May 2007 working with the Military Advising Team and then was promoted to Coordinator of Special Projects for Office of Enrollment Management executive administration unit in December 2008. From the beginning, she has incorporated the mission and core values of UMUC not only in her work with students but also with her fellow colleagues. Even though her current position focuses on student issues, she also has a great concern for the environment of her colleagues. In her concern, she has coordinated several events for her colleagues including an inauguration event for OEM staff this past election, has put together birthday cards and candy bags for colleagues and continues to encourage the people around her whenever she can. I feel that she would be a huge asset to ASAC and that her input would help the committee accomplish its goals.
