Marylyn goes above and beyond to help all of her customers – both within the university and the public. She has dedicated a significant amount of time to train others in her area about all aspects of the financial aid process. She knows exactly how much each element of the financial aid process affects the student and knows how to communicate the results of that process to the right people.

When Marylyn discusses financial aid with students and their parents – in-person or over the phone – she is clear, detailed and very patient when people are confused, have a unique situation or have multiple issues to work out. A co-worker describes how she works as treating everyone “just like she would treat her own family.”
Her supervisor describes her as a person who has a wealth of institutional knowledge and who shares that information in a pleasant and clear way with students, the parents of students, and colleagues. She also has become a tremendous asset when training new employees.
With her today is her husband, Dick May, the manager of Telecommunications at UNO.
