Lori Wiggins received the Operational Efficiency, Effectiveness and Sustainability Award for GSU’s College of Education. Lori is an administrative Assistant II, Departments of Elementary and Special Education, and Middle Grades and Secondary Education, Georgia Southern College of Education.

“Lori embodies operational efficiency…and does it all with grace and a smile. Whether coordinating supplies for faculty, solving problems with the department’s copy machine or tracking down information for a student, Lori effectively and efficiently completes the task at hand. Innovative and creative in her problem-solving, she ensures faculty have the support and supplies needed to support student success. Whenever a colleague encounters a challenge, my advice is always to ‘ask Lori.’ She is unwavering in her willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ to help faculty and in the process contributes to the overall effectiveness of our college. Lori’s commitment to both effectiveness and efficiency of the college is also evident in her leadership role on the staff council. In this role, she facilitates communication among staff to ensure consistency of service across departments which directly impacts the quality of our students’ experiences and education,” said Michelle Reidel, Ph.D.
