Natalie Stephens, a graphic designer for the UGA Center for Continuing Education & Hotel, is the latest Public Service and Outreach staff member to receive the PSO employee Spotlight Award.

PSO Vice President Jennifer Frum surprised Stephens with the award during a sales and event coordination division meeting at the Georgia Center, and praised her work.

“You totally make (the Georgia Center) look great on Instagram and Facebook,” Frum said.

Stephens was nominated for the award by colleague Sue Smith, who supervises Stephens.

“Natalie makes my department run faster and better, has brought a host of new ideas and visuals to the work that the Georgia Center produces, and … has yet to say no to anything she’s been asked to do,” Smith wrote in her nomination. “She adds so much value to the Georgia Center … and I believe she should be recognized and celebrated beyond our unit.”

Stephens received a gift basket of treats and a framed certificate recognizing the award.
