Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is pleased to announce the 2018 Spring Term Circle of Caring Award winners. Congratulations to Sarah Juett as the staff recipient and Lisa Huckaby as the faculty recipient!
The Circle of Caring Award is a recognition for faculty and staff who go above and beyond their job duties and strive to uphold FNU’s mission and Culture of Caring everyday. One faculty and staff member is recognized each term.
FNU faculty and staff were invited to nominate someone anonymously. Nominations were then voted upon by a committee based on the following Culture of Caring characteristics: professionalism, mutual support, respect, positive communication and inclusivity.
Sarah Juett is an Academic Advisor at FNU. Sarah’s nominations included the following statements:
“Working with Sarah has always been a pleasure. The last time we worked together at Frontier Bound I was struck by her gift in supporting students while telling them the expectations of the program. The way she talks with me and students was so professional and healthy that I was impressed. I think the skill set she brings to the job are incredibly valuable and important. She exemplifies the Culture of Caring in her interactions.”
“She offers mutual support. She exercises humility in her work. She acknowledges mistakes, commiserates when things are difficult, and keeps her finger on the pulse of the unit.”
Lisa Huckaby is a certified nurse-midwife and Assistant Professor at FNU. The following are excerpts from her anonymous nomination:
“A student asked me to discuss some personal healthcare decisions. I asked the Associate Deans to point me in a direction of someone who might be able to be a sounding board for her. Lisa Huckaby stepped up to support her, discuss pros and cons, and help her find the resources she needed to make a decision for herself. I can’t check enough boxes for why this is a great example of our Culture of Caring. I am so proud to work with people who go above and beyond the faculty role like Lisa did.”
“Lisa is a great support to me. She has answered questions quickly and expertly. She is very helpful. Thanks Lisa!”
Both Lisa and Sarah will receive a framed certificate, a $50 gift card and will be featured in various FNU communications.
Congratulations to both of these hardworking members of the FNU family!
