Whalen Celebrates 25 Years and Staff Award

Posted on 08.24.2015

Marilyn Whalen, the Assistant to the Head celebrated 25 years at UIUC in November and also received news that she is to receive the LAS Distinguished Staff award for 2014-2015 in the spring.

Marilyn has been working for SESE and the Department of Geology for about 8 years, spicing up the department in many ways, not least is the introduction of reindeer games to the Christmas party (and actually the summer picnic and other celebrations also). She balances working partly for SESE and partly for the Department - essentially serving two masters (well really a depatment head and a school director) with aplomb. For the 25 year anniversary the department sprung for cupcakes for everyone.
