Staff Service Award Recipients


The 2014 recipient of the Staff Service Award is Mrs. Cheri Slattery, Administrative Assistant in the Integrated Marketing and Communications Department. For almost 40 years, Cheri has volunteered and served in numerous and wide-ranging capacities at Womankind—a nonprofit, nonsectarian prenatal and maternal healthcare center that offers comprehensive support services—free of charge—to pregnant women and their families in emotional and financial need. In addition to this, Cheri organizes a voluntary Christmas “giving tree” every year for the Advancement Division at JCU, to benefit The Rose-Mary Center, which manages five group homes for developmentally handicapped adults ranging in age from 19 to their 60′s. She truly is an exemplary employee committed to her community, social justice, and the values of Jesuit education.
