2012 Employee of the Year - Christy Tilford

2012 Employee of the Year Chancellor Christensen and Paul Clark

If there is a tight deadline to be met or a task that requires long, even weekend hours, rest assured that Christy Tilford, Enrollment Management Analyst, will make sure it gets done.

As she likes to say, "It has to get done."

That go-getter attitude is part of the reason Tilford has been named the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) 2012 Employee of the Year. She was chosen from the impressive list of 12 Employee of the Month award winners from the past year.

A North Platte, Neb., native, Tilford has worked at UNO full-time since 1990. Previously, she worked part-time in UNO’s Learning Center, Registrar’s Office and Orientation while attending school.

"She does an outstanding job meeting both the needs of the office and supporting the students," said one of her nominators. "Christy reflects the ‘student-centered’ mission of the University in every aspect of her job, always finding time to meet with the students and resolve their issues."

Another nominator praised her calming effect on parents and students and her knack for discussing performance issues with employees.

Possessing in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Admissions process, Tilford’s years of experience make her a valued—and indispensible—part of the UNO community. This past year, Tilford’s days were anything but usual—she assisted walk-in students, evaluated student academic records for admission eligibility, served on committees, maintained PeopleSoft for Admissions Operations and helped fill in while the assistant director position was vacant. She even served as treasurer of UNO’s faculty-staff bowling league as well as for the UNO chapter of Phi Kappa Phi.

"I wouldn’t be working here if I didn’t like it," Tilford said. "I like the variety, the challenge and the people."

Tilford was recognized at the Annual Faculty Senate/Staff Advisory Council (SAC) Recognition Banquet, on April 24, and received a plaque and monetary gift for the honor.
