Featured Employee of the Month

Eric Hunt
The Department of Counseling and Human Services would like to nominate Eric Hunt for job performance above and beyond the call of duty while also exhibiting a positive attitude! Eric, in his role as Testing Services Coordinator, provided great assistance to the Human Services faculty and students as they navigated the major field test administration process. In between the fall and spring semester administrations of the external exam that was used for the MFT, the organization with which we were working changed the entire testing process including the test vendor, computer requirements, registration, and payment. These changes were relayed to us just a couple of weeks prior to the test window. Eric communicated clearly with all university and external personnel, dealt with what appeared to be irreconcilable demands, identified equipment that would meet specifications, and developed processes that would make it as easy as possible for students to complete the test. It is through Eric’s efforts – to find a way – and his collaboration with Leigh Lewis in the Institutional Effectiveness office and Dr. Bill Garris, Assistant Professor in Human Services, that we were able to successfully complete the major field test process. We are grateful for his professionalism and positive working relationship! - Janna Scarborough
