Star Employee of the Quarter, Lisa Gonzalez Bullard
Administrative Support Associate, Office for Diversity and Inclusion
UNCP is a better place to work, because of people like Lisa Bullard. When the ERC created the Employee of the Quarter award, they must have had Lisa Bullard in mind. For over 12 years, she has exhibited unselfish devotion to duty far and above the normal requirements, outlined in her position description. Her nickname is Service with a Smile!
The greatest attributes that any employee can bring to UNCP are service and respect to our students and employees. In the 12 years that Mrs. Lisa Gonzalez Bullard has been a star team member of ODI, she has captured the hearts of everyone that has come in contact with her. She has developed so many positive relationships with the various university departments and offices, as well as the Pembroke community. In my 20 years with UNCP, I have never been more privileged and honored to have such an individual team member. In an office of 2 full time staff members, Lisa has become my right hand, a 2nd mother to many of our students, and a great resource to so many UNC Pembroke employees. UNCP is fortunate to have Lisa as part of the UNCP family, but particularly Student Affairs. She is supportive, dedicated, tenacious, giving, caring, compassionate, and the list could go on and on. Furthermore, she represents UNCP’s slogan/motto “Catch the Spirit" by having such a warm, welcoming, and inclusive spirit.
