Shirley Jeffrey – February 2021

Please join UCF Human Resources in congratulating the newest USPS Employee of the Month (EOM) for February 2021: Shirley Jeffrey.

Shirley Jeffrey is an Administrative Assistant III in Undergraduate Affairs in the College of Community Innovation and Education. Her nominators, Katy Weilant and Megan Mitchell had this to say about her:

“Shirley has shown commitment to UCF’s values. She possesses integrity and is always humble and honest with everything she does. She is a life-learner and is always striving to learn more and do more. She promotes a sense of community by treating our team like family and helps make us a cohesive unit. She consistently comes up with creative ways to help business practices move more efficiently. She takes a lot of pride in her work and holds herself to very high standards, showing her excellence. She strives to be the best she can be and continues to keep growing, personally and professionally at UCF.

Since our office has begun gradually re-opening after the COVID-19 campus closure, Shirley eagerly volunteered to work daily at both of our advising office locations on the main campus and downtown to prepare the office to meet with students, faculty, and staff in an environment that complies with CDC guidelines. Shirley is always the first to volunteer to do work behind the scenes that will make the jobs of her staff easier and better. She does these things with humility in that she truly wants to assist and serve the greater good, which is to serve our students, faculty, and staff. For anyone who knows Shirley, she takes a lot of pride in her work and is a vocal, passionate supporter of UCF and its mission to serve the Knights Community. All in all, the Undergraduate Affairs team is better because Shirley is a part of it.”

As USPS Employee of the Month, Shirley receives a $200 cash award, $25 from UCF Business Services and UCF Bookstore, and a goody bag. She is now eligible for the USPS Employee of the Year $2,500 award, announced at the UCF Knight Star Awards.
