Auggie Pride Recipients for October: Jad Habib and Emilie Lenz

submitted by

Congratulations to our Auggie Pride Award winners for the month of October: Jad Habib – Administrative Liaison for Computing and Emilie Lenz – Financial Aid Counselor.

Regarding Jad: “Right now he is working with a ton of staff that need new computers that we don’t even know half of what we need when we meet with Jad to switch everything out. I think Jad deserves this award as he brings a happiness to this stressful time and goes out of his way to made it seamless. This includes dropping by to help our student workers and ourselves at the drop of a hat (I swear he is always running around) and finding new tricks and tips for us for an easier time helping students. I could not think of someone better for this honor.”

Regarding Emilie: “Emilie went above and beyond to help an incoming student this fall and played a major role in helping the student move forward in attending Augsburg. A graduate student was at risk of deferring enrollment a full year because she was navigating some added challenges with financial aid eligibility. Emilie was patient, reassuring, knowledgeable, and resourceful in working with this student. She went out of her way to reach out to other campus partners to advocate for the student and ensure we exhausted all options available to help support the student in gaining the funding needed to attend school this fall.”

The Augsburg Staff Senate is happy to recognize Jad and Emilie’s amazing work. Congratulations to them both!
