BLACKSBURG, Va., Sept. 17, 2004 – Charlotte Breeding, of Christiansburg, executive secretary to the Virginia Tech Police chief, has received the university’s 2004 President’s Award for Excellence.
The President’s Award for Excellence recognizes selected and staff and administrative faculty members for their outstanding contributions to Virginia Tech. Nominations are received from all areas of the university and recognize extraordinary contributions and sustained excellence in the performance of job duties and responsibilities. Recipients are selected by a committee of classified and administrative faculty members appointed by the president.
Breeding coordinates police services with more than 20 agencies to ensure athletic events are properly staffed. She not only is dedicated to her job, but she constantly performs duties that are not part of her job description.
Breeding’s duties include monitoring the budget, processing payroll for all salaried employees, and handling all purchasing requests and paperwork.
Breeding’s work has been consistently superior as is evidenced by continuous nominations the committee receives on her behalf each year and the fact that she received a Certificate of Recognition from President Charles Steger this spring for having been nominated for the Governor’s Customer Service Award. She epitomizes the ideals behind the Presidents Award.
She has been with the Virginia Tech Police Department for 27 years.
