UACCB Outstanding Staff Person Announced


University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville announced Lori Bell of Batesville as the 2013-2014 outstanding staff person during the end of semester campus meeting in May. Lori is institutional services assistant for UACCB.


Since 2007, Bell has been a member of the physical plant staff and is known for her high standard of performance and reliability according to her supervisor, Mr. Heath Wooldridge, physical plant director. “Lori is a positive member of the physical plant team and exhibits a win-win philosophy,” Wooldridge said. “The combination of her work ethic and experience enables her to be an excellent mentor to other employees. Because of her willingness to strive for high quality and a positive atmosphere on campus, UACCB is a better place to work and a better place for students to get a quality education.”



When her name was announced as outstanding staff person, Lori said she was “very shocked,” and because she works nights was “pretty sure no one knew who I was as I try to be unobtrusive and have limited contact with other staff.”  Her area includes Independence Hall, which hosts various community events throughout the year. Therefore, Lori interacts with many people attending those events and she is conscientious of the public relations aspect of her position and treats everyone with courtesy and kindness.



Bell enjoys working in her yard, especially her flower garden, when she is not working at UACCB.  She will be recognized at the UACCB community picnic in September and will represent UACCB as outstanding staff at the Arkansas Association of Two Year College annual conference in Hot Springs in October.
