By Sophie Foster News Co-Editor Washington College announced that, beginning this month, employees who represent the College well and do work that is integral to the College’s ongoing success could be chosen as WC’s version of employee of the month: featured flock member of the month. September’s pick, according to Director of Residential Life and Chair of the Staff Council Amy Sine, is Director of Admissions Kelsey Miller ’10. According to Sine, Miller was nominated by several members of the admissions staff. One of these nominations defined Miller as “the glue that has held [the admissions] department together these last few months [because they] were down five admissions counselors.” Miller took over Slate following Robyn Nesbitt’s departure, then became the Director of Events and Volunteers when Coleen Beddick left, and does marketing and executive assistant work in place of Lorna Hunter, on top of the responsibilities assigned by her position as director of admissions, and the personal challenges of raising a toddler, according to the nomination. Another nomination said that Miller “has been working tirelessly to keep the admissions department and all its members rolling. She is extremely dedicated to not only the College, but her entire team and all the prospective students and their families.” According to Sine, Kelsey was chosen to be honored in this way because of the several nominations submitted on her behalf, particularly because one of these nominations came as a collaborative effort from five staff members. To Sine, that indicated a recognition from those who work closely with Miller that she is doing great things behind the scenes that are seen by her peers. “In Kelsey’s case, she picked up work from several vacancies and many people around campus have noticed,” Sine said. “This has been [a] monthly honor for many years,” Sine said, adding that it was put on pause for awhile before returning this year. While there is not a set rubric for determining who earns this honor, Sine said that the primary consideration was whether or not the nominee went “above and beyond” in their position. The most important thing a staff member can do, according to Sine, is represent the best of us in their work and their character.
