Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is thrilled to announce the 2018 Summer Term Circle of Caring Award winners. Congratulations to Debra Hunt as the faculty recipient and Wesley Farmer as the staff 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.
Wesley Farmer is the Maintenance Supervisor at FNU. The following are excerpts from his anonymous nominations:
“Wesley is always ready and willing to help. No matter how many different directions he’s being pulled in or how busy he is, his pleasant demeanor and service with a smile remains constant. He is the nicest and most helpful person ever. He never complains, is always positive and does whatever is asked of him.”
Debra Hunt, PhD, is a FNP and Course Faculty Member at FNU. The following are excerpts from her anonymous nominations:
“Debra has been a tremendous help in PC702. She has gone over and above her role as course faculty and helped with assignments, ideas on how to improve the course, and taken her teaching to a new level while supporting the other course faculty. She has been nothing but supportive, and is also helping another faculty member monitoring her course while she is on vacation! This level of willingness to step above the course faculty role is something to appreciate and support.”
Both winners will receive a framed certificate, a $50 gift card and will be featured in various FNU communications.
Our sincere congratulations to Wesley and Debra for exemplifying the spirit of community and caring at FNU.
