EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire staff member Sara Thommesen was recognized with the 2009 Support Staff Recognition Award at the annual conference of the Wisconsin College Personnel Association Oct. 22-24 in Wisconsin Dells.

Thommesen is a university services associate for student organizations in the Activities and Programs office of the University Centers. Her responsibilities include assisting more than 240 student organizations at UW-Eau Claire.

The Support Staff Recognition Award recognizes support staff members on Wisconsin campuses who interact regularly with students and staff and understand their mission to serve students and their department. The recipient demonstrates genuine concern for the life and development of students, excels in job responsibilities, goes above and beyond job responsibilities and makes a significant contribution to staff with whom they serve. The award winner receives a WCPA conference registration fee waiver.

Thommesen was nominated by Angie Bong, University Centers coordinator for student leadership and organizations and chair of the 2009 WCPA conference.

"It is very evident in her everyday interactions that she cares about and wants the best for students, as she works diligently to help get them the information and resources they need to succeed," Bong wrote in nominating Thommesen. "I know I can always count on Sara to go above and beyond in her job responsibilities."

WCPA is a state division of the American College Personnel Association: College Student Educators International. The nonprofit organization provides low-cost, high-quality professional development opportunities to student affairs professionals in the state of Wisconsin.
