Feasel wins Ferrari Award | Festival Series announced


Carroll Feasel
It's a rare person who possesses sterling qualities both personally and professionally, but Carroll Feasel is one such person. Her colleagues in the College of Health and Human Services want the rest of the world to appreciate her as they do. Their nomination earned Feasel the 2014 Michael R. Ferrari Award - the highest honor given to administrative staff.

Feasel, executive assistant to the dean and college budget director, received $1,000, a reserved parking space for a year and plaque in her honor that will hang in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, presented at the Administrative Staff Council annual reception April 24.

Marie Dunn-Harris
The University is definitely happy that Marie Dunn-Harris has joined its ranks, and Administrative Staff Council has presented her the Rookie of the Year Award. In the 11 months since Dunn-Harris joined the Office of Marketing and Communications, she has made incredible strides in creating buzz and engaging current and prospective students and the BGSU community through social media, said her nominator Dave Kielmeyer, senior communications director.

"She not only always agreed to any requested task or idea, she was always thinking of new ideas that created more work for herself, such as the University's 'Happy' video that she posted online within a week of thinking of the idea," Kielmeyer said. "She scheduled hundreds of people, worked with WBGU students to film, and edited the film all while managing her 'regular' duties."
