Valerie Bardhi ’15, Annual Giving Specialist, is this month’s Featured Employee.

This employee has all of the characteristics you’d expect from a Featured Employee: bright, cheerful and a joy to work with. What inspired this submission is that in the past year while Alumni Relations & Annual Giving has been short handed, this employee has worked diligently to complete her own responsibilities, has accepted every additional assignment sent her way, and has even sought out opportunities to go above and beyond to allow College Advancement to try new things. In addition to her regular responsibilities, among the projects she has put in overtime on: she has taken on training and deploying the student Voyagers, who meet with alumni around the country during college breaks to conduct interviews and help alumni deepen their connection to WC. She been integral in compiling and editing Class Notes for the WC magazine. Beyond the regular Phonathon, this past January this employee helped the Swim Team organize an additional week of calling, to raise money for the Swimming Endowment. Not only did this calling session add several thousand dollars to the endowment, but it serves as a model for more strategic partnership between Advancement and Athletics down the road.
