Shirlene Phy's Friendly Ways Earn Her Ambassador Honors

TTU'S JULY AMBASSADOR OF THE MONTH -- Shirlene Phy, a human ecology department secretary at Tennessee Technological University, is not only "a valuable asset to our school, college and university," said Leigh Southward, but she's an excellent friend. Southward, an assistant professor of human ecology, recently fell and broke her arm. "Shirlene took me to the emergency clinic and stayed in the treatment room with me. Having her there to keep my mind off the pain was a real blessing. She took me to the orthopedic specialist, then took me home and made sure I had something to eat before leaving me to return to work." Nomination forms for Tech Ambassador of the Month are available from the university's Personnel/Payroll Office in Derryberry Hall.
