Congratulations to the Recipient and Finalists of the 2007 Candace J. Johnson Staff Award for Excellence!

2007 Award Recipient
Marga Schuhwerk-Hampel

MSH winner

The 2007 winner of the Candace J. Johnson Staff Award for Excellence is Marga Schuhwerk-Hampel.

Marga is the Student Services Coordinator in the Germanic Languages and Literatures Department in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.  Marga was nominated by Helmut Puff, Karl Georg Federhofer, Silke-Maria Weineck, Hartmut Rastalsky, and Graduate Students of German.

Selected Comments from Marga's Nomination:

Marga is the person at the heart of our department:  she is the person to whom everyone turns to solve problems, and she is the person whose office everyone is most likely to stop by for a chat or to get something off their chest.  We have been tremendously fortunate to have Marga in our department.

Marga cares.  She cares about the people in the department, she cares about the tasks she is entrusted with, she cares about the overall climate within the unit.  Yet her caring, and her ability to establish good working relationships with all the different people she sees during the course of one day is always wedded to an admirable comprehension of complicated administrative matters.

She is an outstanding staff person.  Competence, friendliness, and commitment are her hallmarks.

Marga is a team player.  She coordinates with others and conceives of her work as a part of a larger whole.  It is the big picture she has in mind.

Her optimism and her devotion to the well-being of everybody who depends on her have made her this department’s center.

She has two strengths that one does not often see combined in one person, namely absolute competence and reliability on the one hand, and genuine, warm concern for the people she works with on the other hand.
