Dean’s Award for Excellence in Service

Jeanette Maier-Lytle
Jeanette Maier-Lytle, Instructor in Accounting

"The service award uplifted my spirits during a time of mental drain from the countless hours of online preparation and teaching, while taking care of my family. Service has always been a part of my life. My mom instilled the act of serving in me years ago, as I watched her lead a Boy Scout troop, work as a waitress and cook, and take care of her family.

I appreciate the opportunity to serve in many different capacities, but I particularly love serving as the adviser for the the Accounting Club and the student case study competition teams. We have amazing students, and it is such a joy to watch them grow and develop into young professionals."
