The members of the History Department have long known how lucky we are to have Beverley Gentry as our Senior Staff Assistant. And, as it turns out, we aren't the only ones who recognize Bev's talents. On Tuesday, June 19, 2007, Bev was recognized as a recipient of the 2007 UAH Foundation Staff Award. In addition to keeping the History Department running smoothly, Bev has participated in the UAH Staff Senate as Chair of the Policy and Procedure Committee, and she is also a member of the University Women's Club and the International Association of Administrative Professionals. When asked what she likes most about her job, Bev responded that she appreciates the varied interactions she has with both faculty and students and that she has enjoyed watching the growth of UAH since she began to work here 17 years ago. She also said that she is "proud to work for an outstanding department that makes her want to strive to do her very best work." We, the faculty of the history department, all know that we would not be able to do our best work without Bev's dependable and eager support. Congratulations, Bev, and thanks for all that you do for us!
