Staff Honored for Outstanding Performance

On November 18, Rebecca Wenning, administrative associate at the Brandeis School of Law, received an Outstanding Performance Award for staff.  She was presented with a plaque and a check for $1,000 from President Ramsey and Provost Willihnganz at a reception at Amelia Place.

Wenning provides administrative support for the law school’s faculty, deans, staff and students. In that role, she supervises one employee and a research assistant in daily operations to provide exceptional customer service, produce accurate materials and effectively meet desired timelines. Wenning is the quintessential team player and always is willing to take on additional tasks that are not part of her job duties. She makes time to volunteer and is heavily involved in the UofL Cares campaign as well as Lawlapalooza, the legal community's annual “Battle of the Bands” fundraiser, and other events at the law school. Wenning always looks for ways to improve not only her skills but also the law school.

Simone Beach, Assistant Director of the Law Clinic, was one of three staff members who received an honorable mention.
