SARASOTA, Fla. (June 1, 2015) – Lana Rusch, an administrative specialist at USF Sarasota-Manatee’s College of Hospitality & Tourism Leadership, has received a Quiet Quality Award.

The Staff Senate presented Rusch the award “in recognition of her dedication to co-workers and students to make the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee a university of first choice.”

“I was just shocked,” said Rusch, who was surprised Friday with an award certificate and flowers. “I didn’t know what to say.”

Amanda Kulaw, academic services administrator at the College of Hospitality & Tourism Leadership, nominated Rusch for the award.

“She juggles multiple projects at the same time with a smile on her face and positive attitude,” Kulaw said.” She is proactive, organized and goes above and beyond to get the job done. She is a hard worker and works well under pressure.”
