You might not be appreciated enough but you guys do all the work that makes our jobs much easier.  I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic job you do every day and all your crew members!!”

Myrtle Makes Her First Visit of 2014

Myrtle and Herbert1

Myrtle is starting the year off with a visit to Herbert Rotich, Financial Aid Technician/Counselor.  Here is what was said in appreciation of Herbert:

Herbert,

You are a true friend for SAU students and staff!

Financial Aid can be a mysterious and seemingly ever-changing process for me and my SAU Student Support teammates.  We often are at a loss as to how to best help students with financial inquiries; however we always know we can count on you for expert assistance! 

Your general kindness and willingness to help whenever contacted is very much appreciated.  You are a great example of the best SAU staff can be! 

Thank you for being our, ‘Go-To Guy,’ in the Financial Aid Office!
