Beginning in March 2015, Staff Council began recognizing our campus staff members in a new way.  We launched our "Staff Caught Being Awesome" program to continue to honor and thank our hard-working staff.  Any Chico State staff employee is eligible to be nominated by any administrator, faculty, student, or staff peer.  Nominations are accepted from the first of each month through the last Wednesday of each month through Staff Council email.  Staff who are nominated are featured on our Staff Council Facebook page on the first working day of every month (except for July and August) and a picture of the staff member will be featured.  Staff who are "caught being awesome" also receive an appreciation certificate from the Staff Council Chair.

We hope you will "catch staff being awesome" and let us know about it! 

June 2020 Winner of Staff Caught Being Awesome

Allyson Bartley – Office of Accessible Technology and Services (OATS)

Allyson Bartley, Accessible Content Specialist, Office of Accessible Technology and Services is the recipient of the ‘Cats Caught Being Awesome award for the month of June.  Otherwise known as Ally, she was nominated by Terry Quinto, Mary Cox, Cathy Carey, and Holly Hunt.  Ally has been going the extra mile since she was hired, however even more so recently.  She has been implementing a new case management system for the Accessibility Resource Center.  This system has taken a year of Ally’s dedicated attention.  Ally is described as the go-to person in this highly complicated process.  Ally has been the liaison between the vendor and our campus IT department, working countless hours to ensure a smooth transition for students and faculty, as well as creating tutorials for students, ARC staff, and faculty.  Ally has the distinct ability to interact with students with disabilities.  She works with these students to find out what types of technological accommodations they may need.  Ally accomplishes this with ease, and makes each student feel important, safe, and heard.  She helps these students see themselves as capable students and maintains relationships with continued communication.

Congratulations Ally, on showing us how a staff member can make a difference in the lives of so many.
