Past Star Employees


Star Employee of the Quarter, Lee Hammonds

Mr. Lee Hammonds is simply AMAZING!!! He goes above and beyond to assist veteran students as well as other students who may have financial aid questions. He is always professional, pleasant, & prepared to do everything that his job requires and more. To me, he demonstrates what it means to be an employee with top-notch customer skills. The greatest attributes that an employee can bring to UNCP is service and respect and that is what Lee does.
He has developed many positive relationships with the various university departments, as well as within the community. Lee Hammonds is an intelligent, hardworking, and shining representative of the Financial Aid Department. He is an invaluable asset to UNCP, who I deem is worthy of being recognized/honored as the Employee of the Quarter.”


Keats Ellis, Employee of the Quarter

Star Employee of the Quarter, Keats Ellis

 “Keats is a long time employee of the University who is always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty.  He never hesitates when asked to accept additional responsibilities and is always willing to stay late or come in early if needed.  He knows everyone on campus by name and is quick to learn newcomers and make them feel welcome.  Not only does he do his share for the Bookstore but he shares his talent of piano playing with various other departments by donating his time for various fundraising events on campus.  I believe that his customer service skills along with his dedication and team spirit qualify him to be Employee of the Quarter!”
