The Russ College of Engineering and Technology congratulates Student Services Administrative Specialist Brenda Sinclair on receiving the "Hidden Gem" award at the Ohio University Women’s Achievement Dinner on Wed., March 20.

The Ohio University Women's Center awards the "Hidden Gem" award annually to a staff member within the university who does not necessarily perform "glamorous" work, but provides necessary support that keeps her department functioning.

"Brenda has become the face of the Russ College to our potential employers, both for internships and permanent placements," said Dean Dennis Irwin. "Her efforts in dramatically expanding the quality and size of our Russ College Career Fairs is truly superb."

At the Russ College, Brenda aides the Office of Professional Experiences in coordinating career fairs. She also manages budgets, manages room reservations for Stocker Center and the Academics & Research Center, and serves as the engineering and technology administrator and the backup for the student records office.
