Bybee and Emert honored as Ambassadors of the Month

Tennessee Tech University's May and June ambassadors have earned a reputation for helpfulness among students, faculty and staff.

Melinda Bybee, technical clerk in TTU's School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Extended Education, made coming back to school a lot easier for Gina Key, who graduated in May.

"Many things have changed at TTU since I was a student 10 years ago!" said Key. "I decided to work on my Ed.S., and as soon as I started the process last August, Melinda helped me in so many ways. From computer registration, schedule changes, off-campus classes, etc., she was always eager to help and very knowledgeable about campus procedures. She sure made my year at TTU a more pleasurable experience!"

Stephen Emert, academic computing specialist in Information Technology Services, helped faculty member Douglas Airhart work out the kinks of a new computer system.

"Stephen provided excellent assistance with selecting, installing and repairing my office and laptop computers," said Airhart. "He's very knowledgeable about technical information, he had a quick response to my inquiries, and he was able to get my new system operating before an important deadline, even though it was very short notice for him."
