Outstanding Employee Award

112404teresa_dl.jpgTeresa Canton, manager of donor and advancement services at Appalachian State University, has received the Outstanding Employee Award from the university’s Division of University Advancement. Canton was worked at the university since 1974, and moved to the donor and advancement services area in 1997. Employees are nominated for the award by their co-workers based on attitude, teamwork, initiative, creativity, hard work, and going beyond the call of duty. Canton was recognized by her peers for her work implementing a new database system called Banner. Her nominators said: “Teresa has had so many added responsibilities and challenges thrown her way this year, but in the midst of it all she takes it in stride and still takes the time to help out whenever possible. I can’t think of another member of the advancement team whose work this year will so impact the way we operate in the years ahead.”
