Rosalind Christianson has received the University Staff Employee Appreciation Award for March at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Christianson, of Menomonie, is a senior financial specialist at the Memorial Student Center. She has been employed at UW-Stout for 32 years. She will be retiring in May.

Christianson’s nomination stated: “Rose is always willing to be involved in campus activities. Her first thought is: ‘How can I help?’ Rose stands up for others who need assistance and isn’t afraid to say what she thinks. This makes our campus stronger. Rose always cares about co-workers and has a smile on her face at work. She loves UW-Stout and believes that it will be a better place because all of us together make it a better place.”

Each winner receives a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout travel mug and a UW-Stout blanket.

Students, faculty and staff may nominate a university staff member who demonstrates a commitment to excellence and the university community.

The award, in its 14th year, was established by the Chancellor’s Office and is co-sponsored by the University Staff Senate.
