Each year, The University of Toledo recognizes an individual who goes beyond his or her traditional job responsibilities and is an ambassador for the Division of Enrollment Services.The Dr. Robert J. Schlembach Award is given to that person who works outside the division but who gives unselfishly of his or her time to promote the University and whose loyalty, dedication and outstanding service to UT creates a model for others to follow.
Jamie Galambos, university computing administrator with Information Technology, received the 2011 Schlembach Award for going out of her way to be helpful to everyone in the division. She was recognized at the Dec. 20 town hall meeting.
One nomination letter championed Galambos: “Even though she has many buildings to service, I know without a doubt that she will be here soon to save the day!” Another read, “She is a wealth of knowledge and there usually isn’t a problem that she can’t fix!”
“It is important to recognize those individuals who go above and beyond for the greater University of Toledo,” said Lawrence J. Burns, UT vice president for external affairs.
“Serving our students — those currently enrolled, the prospective students we want to attract here and our graduates — is really the job of everyone at the University, and people like Jamie who see that big picture and make sure they do whatever they can to help are truly special.”
Galambos is a graduate of The University of Toledo who has worked for the institution 10 years.
The award is named for Schlembach, who has a long history of contributing to the profession of pharmacy and to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. He is committed to alumni engagement as a tool for advancing the college and remains active as a historian for its Alumni Affiliate and on the Dean’s Cabinet.
