ATHENS, Ohio (May 11, 2005) -- Connie Knowlton was honored at the Classified Senate?s April monthly meeting as Ohio University?s Classified Employee of the Month for April 2005. Knowlton is an Administrative Associate for the Marketing Department within the College of Business.
Knowlton was nominated for the award by Kenneth Hartung, Executive Director of The Sales Centre. Hartung praises Knowlton for her multitasking when the Sales Certificate Candidates increased from 25 students to 111 students. Neither the sales symposium nor the Corporate Outreach events would have been possible without Knowlton?s hard work and creative contributions according to Hartung.
When asked what she is most proud of as an OU employee, Knowlton states that it would be her work with the Marketing faculty and students to reach educational goals. Also, she is proud to have been involved in the development and growth of the Certificate in Sales program for students. Knowlton speculates that she has probably already found a dream job in the Marketing Department because she receives so much joy from her work. She describes herself as a leader, being organized and friendly.
