Sandra Wood, the senior administrative secretary in the University of Houston-Victoria School of Arts & Sciences, recently was named the UHV 2007 Employee of the Year.

“Sandra deserves this award,” UHV President Tim Hudson said. “She is a hard worker who inspires everyone at UHV to do his or her best.”

 

Wood, who has worked at UHV since June of 1993, was voted Employee of the Year by her peers. They selected Wood from a ballot listing each 2007 Employee of the Month.

 

Co-workers describe Wood as upbeat, optimistic, confident and full of energy. They said she appreciates those with whom she works and brings out the best in everyone.

 

“Ms. Wood has earned this award,” said Jeffrey Di Leo, dean of the UHV School of Arts & Sciences. “She is a great team builder who helps everyone in Arts & Sciences to succeed. I deeply value her contributions.”

 

Wood received a $500 check, a UHV T-shirt and a plaque. Her name also will be engraved on the Employee of the Year plaque displayed in the West Building.
