TWU to recognize staff at Honors Convocation


DENTON — Three Texas Woman’s University will be honored for their contributions to the university during Honors Convocation ceremonies Thursday, April 21. Convocation begins at 10 a.m. in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s Denton campus.

Jerry Don Sprayberry, senior general services clerk for Facilities Management and Construction, will receive the TWU Excellence Award. Jason Brison, manager of Information Systems Applications Support for Information Services, and Brenda Klingner, coordinator for University Scheduling, will receive Outstanding Staff Achievement awards.

The TWU Award of Excellence is presented to a full-time employee who has a minimum of five years continuous service with TWU. The employee should display outstanding personality traits such as loyalty, dedication, initiative and reliability, and should demonstrate the ability to relate well to all members of the university community. Recipients of the Outstanding Achievement Awards must be full-time TWU employees who have a minimum of two years of continuous service to the university and who exhibit superior job performance and a high degree of proficiency in their position.

Sprayberry has been employed with TWU for 20 years and has earned a reputation as someone who always gets the job done. “He has been given tasks to complete that would have taken others a week to complete, and he would have it completed correctly and before the deadline,” one of his nominators said. “He has a winning attitude that is contagious.”

Brison drew rave reviews from faculty and staff for his help in making the transition to a new software system. “Without his classroom training sessions and often one-on-one assistance, this transition would not have been possible,” one nominator said. Others described him as a model employee for TWU. “While his audience usually is the faculty and staff, he is always thinking of how his work will ultimately impact the students of TWU.”

Klingner exhibits exceptional proficiency in a job that covers four campuses. Keeping room assignments straight requires research and an extensive knowledge of all rooms on all campuses. Klingner always accomplishes her work efficiently and in a timely manner, one of her nominators said. She also has assisted at graduation ceremonies on the Denton campus for several years, helping to ensure the events run smoothly.
