Carrie Afanador wins App State Staff Shout Out program's May drawing

The Staff Shout Out program at Appalachian State University announces Carrie Afanador, Clinical Internship Coordinator in App State’s Office of Field Experiences in the Reich College of Educationas the winner of its May drawing. She will receive a gift from the University Bookstore as part of her recognition. 

Carrie was recognized anonymously for a fantastic job organizing their Student Teacher of the Year selection process, and for always being a warm and welcoming colleague. "Part of my work with student teachers is ensuring they are recognized for their success.  Student Teacher of the Year recognizes the incredible work these students have accomplished during their internship and is a reflection of the commitment and experience of the entire RCOE community," Afanador said.

 The Staff Shout Out program, an informal recognition initiative created by Staff Senate’s Staff Recognition Committee, aims to highlight App State staff members for their positive contributions to the university. The committee works to improve employee engagement and encourage an environment of support and appreciation.
