Berglund said she was surprised by the award and humbled and thankful for the people she works with in the biology department.
“I enjoy working with the faculty and staff in preparing for the lab activities they will be doing, but I think working with the student lab assistants brings the most satisfaction,” Berglund said. “I see them learn and grow in so many ways through their experiences at UW-Stout. It’s very gratifying to keep in touch with them after they graduate and move on in their lives after attending UW-Stout. Some will even stop by to visit with me, if they return to campus for something, curious how the labs are going, especially for courses they assisted with.”
Each winner receives a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout travel mug and a UW-Stout blanket.
Students, faculty and staff may nominate university staff members who demonstrate a commitment to excellence and the university community at the University Staff Employee Appreciation Award nomination form.
The award, in its 15th year, was established by the Chancellor’s Office and is co-sponsored by the University Staff Senate.
