Paula joined the ISU and WMC community just this year, in the midst of a hectic and uncertain semester. However, from day one, she has infused the WMC with an innovative, collaborative, generous, and joyful spirit. She works every day to create an environment where everyone is valued for their time, their strengths, their stories, and their perspective. When I observe these efforts–in an email, a newsletter, a meeting, an event–I know that I am valued, too. I want to thank Paula for setting such a wonderful example of what it means to work in student services and to provide encouragement, support, and inspiration for students and colleagues alike.
