Additionally, the 2023 Staff Member of the Year Award was given to Roberta Bailey, assistant director of admissions and transfer relationships. This is a peer-nominated award that recognizes an employee for dedication to this University and her Foresters. But beyond that, it is a public acknowledgment that this individual represents what it means to be a Forester. A Forester chases truth, defies complacency, remains curious, cares completely, embraces interconnectedness, has grit and explores creativity, and a nomination for this award is a statement that says, “This person IS a Forester.”
