Fox receives 2017 COE staff award
The Betty-Ware Wray staff award is given annually to a College of Education (COE) staff member who has excelled in his or her job performance as well as University service. During the College’s annual meeting on August 9, Undergraduate Teacher Education and Accreditation’s (UTE) senior administrative secretary, Carol Fox, was named the 2017-2018 award recipient.
An employee of the undergraduate office since 2012, Fox provides support of the UTE office activities including the placement of all preservice teacher candidates and student teaching applications.
Staff members are nominated for the Betty-Ware Wray Award by COE faculty, staff and students, and the nominations are reviewed by the Staff Advisory Council. The nomination letter for Fox included comments about her professionalism and positive impact on the College.
The writer indicated that “Carol represents the College of Education in a very positive and collaborative manner in her regular and almost daily interactions with school partners.”
“She goes beyond the professional politeness to get the job done, to making personal and sincere connections with P-12 teachers and administrators,” the writer continued.
Fox said she was very humbled by the award.
“I’m honored to be the recipient of the Betty-Ware Wray Award,” she said. “Treating people with respect and striving for a spirit of excellence with our school partners is a win-win combination.”
The Betty-Ware Wray staff award honors the memory of former COE Student Services staff member Betty-Ware Wray. Wray’s in-laws established the award to honor Wray and her legacy as a beloved member of the College family.
