Christy is a native of North Platte and she has worked at UNO full-time since 1990. Before that she worked part-time in UNO’s Learning Center while attending school.
Christy says a typical day does not exist. “I wouldn’t be working here if I didn’t like it,” she says. “I like the variety, the challenge and the people.” In nominating her for the employee honor, one nominator said, “She is definitely the guru for Admissions and consistently demonstrates a strong dedication to find solutions, maintain the admissions system, meet all technical needs for the Admissions People Soft component, and identify issues and resolve them.” Outside of the office, Christy likes to read, play volleyball, travel, and she serves as treasurer of UNO’s faculty-staff bowling league.
Today, Christy is joined by her former supervisor Jolene Adams, and her friend Cindy Teller from UNO’s mathematics department. Please join me in thanking Christy Tilford for her contributions to the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
