Staff Secretary III
Theatre and the Writer’s Workshop
This KUDOS award goes to Ron Zank, Staff Secretary III for the Theatre and the Writer’s Workshop at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. In his own words, Ron “enjoys the sheer variety and the moments when it feels like his desk is on fire!” This makes sense when you hear what a normal day might entail for him. In addition to his regular duties of answering phones and directing visitors, he is also called upon to coordinate auditions, organize the season ticket campaign, give tours, answer questions for potential graduate students, help write grant proposals, research the whereabouts of obscure plays and proofread documents for his colleagues. His colleagues note the ease with which Ron is able to complete his tasks and the manner in which he works, and call his organizational and administrative skills outstanding. In addition, his sense of humor serves him very well as the first point of contact for the public. Joining Ron today is Sharon Sobel, Department Chair and Professor of Theatre at UNO. Please join me in recognizing Ron Zank for his work in UNO’s Theatre department.
