Alyssa Weyant, director of youth programs at the UGA Center for Continuing Education & Hotel, was recognized with a Public Service and Outreach Spotlight Award in September. PSO Vice President Jennifer Frum surprised Weyant during a Zoom meeting.

“For the past two years you have had to be tenacious and overcome a lot of challenges,” Frum said. “The fact that you all did 30 virtual camps and 14 in person is amazing, especially with no issues with Covid.”

Weyant was nominated for the award by colleague Tristan Webb, who noted her strong work ethic during the pandemic, as well as her willingness to take on other responsibilities.

She received a gift box of treats and a framed certificate recognizing her Employee Spotlight Award. The award is presented to PSO employees who go above and beyond their normal responsibilities, who produce outstanding work and who contribute significantly to the strategic mission of the university.

Thirteen of the awards have been presented since the program was introduced in November 2019.
