O'Connell was nominated by Director of Information Technology Marilee Mulvey, who stated: “Whenever I see Ellen, she has a smile on her face.  She is eager to help anyone in any way she can and is very approachable. She exemplifies going “above and beyond” in her work every day, whether that is hauling furniture during renovations or just cleaning offices and classrooms. It is a pleasure to be greeted by her when she is working the day shift.”

The Employee of the Month recognition was initiated in 2016 by Wafa as a way of distinguishing staff members who "go above and beyond the call of duty" in serving Penn State Scranton.

Members of the Penn State Scranton community are encouraged to nominate a staff member that deserves to be recognized for “going above and beyond” online at https://scranton.psu.edu/form/employee-month-nomination-form.

Congratulations, Ellen!
