Holbrook employee of the year
July 31, 2012
Jennifer Holbrook, director of instructional technology at Henderson State University, has been named the university's 2012 Employee of the Year. Holbrook was honored July 26 with a reception at Henderson’s Newberry House where she was presented a plaque by Henderson president Dr. Glendell Jones.
Holbrook, who has been with Henderson for 16 years, will be a candidate for the Arkansas State Employee Association Outstanding Employee of the Year Award. She will represent Henderson at the ASEA banquet Aug. 17.
“Over the past 16 years, Jennifer Holbrook’s dedication and service to Henderson serves as a model for others to follow,” said Dan Mabery, president of the Staff Senate. “According to members of her staff, everything Jennifer does is with a degree of perfection.” The campus community saw firsthand Holbrook’s level of commitment and work ethic as she served as co-chair for the Higher Learning Commission Steering Committee during the past two years.
“The number of untold hours spent working as co-chair for the HLC self-study enterprise could be described as a full-time position, but received no additional compensation or release time for her service,” Mabery said. “While Jennifer motivated the university, gathered documents, and created over 700 individual electronic links for the HLC report, she also continued to provide exceptional leadership for Instructional Technology and the Multimedia Learning Center. Her brand of leadership, strong work ethic, and dedication to Henderson is an example for others to follow.”
