The Nebraska Board of Regents is proud to present a KUDOS Award to Lorraine Street, a clerical assistant in the Office of Field Experiences within the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences at UNO.
A noted problem-solver, student advocate, and resource for her peers, Lorraine has exemplified UNO’s Maverick spirit through her dedication to supporting future educators as they transition from being a student in a classroom to learning how to lead one of their own.
As one nominator writes: “Students and faculty seek her out because they know she will always take the time to find the answers to their questions.”
Lorraine helps keep the office running in her role, which can often mean switching between tasks quickly and in a time-sensitive manner.
“If you know Lorraine, you can count on her to see every situation through to the end,” another nominator writes. “I have personally watched her contact students when they need her guidance.”
And as someone with strong institutional knowledge, Lorraine is not just a hard worker but a resource for her colleagues.
“She has been at UNO for many years and has so much knowledge to share with the rest of the office and college,” a nominator writes. “With all of her responsibilities, she is still always available to answer questions or train a new staff member.”
For her commitment to student success, attention, and willingness to go above and beyond in her role, Lorraine is a true example of excellence and service that we all strive for across the University of Nebraska System.
Joining Lorraine today is Dr. Mary Achelpohl, and Lorraine’s supervisor, Dr. Jackie Proctor. Please join me in congratulating Lorraine for her dedication to UNO.
