Nancy A. RekartNancy A. Rekart
Office Supervisor for the Department of Agricultural Economics
Office Supervisor for the Department of Agricultural Economics at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Nancy serves as a valuable resource person and troubleshooter for her department, in addition to organizing all departmental files, and leveling the workloads of all of the department’s secretarial staff. Nancy is highly respected by her colleagues, and because of this, they often seek her advice on handling complex situations. According to one of her colleagues, “Nancy does not seek glory for herself. She keeps the office functioning without a lot of fanfare….She has been the glue for the department and the institutional memory for a succession of department heads.” In addition to her ability to accomplish gigantic lists of tasks every day, Nancy manages to do so with apparent ease and a generous, pleasant office style. She organizes office birthday parties and social activities, and is always willing to drop what she is doing to help a faculty member. For all of her good work, we are pleased to present Nancy with this Kudos award. She is joined today by Alan Baquet, head of the Agricultural Economics department, and Dick Clark, retired department chair.
