Vicki Mattocks, director of financial aid, was awarded the Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel’s (MASFAP) highest award, the Missouri Award. From associate director Rob Moore:
“The Missouri Award is the highest award bestowed upon a MASFAP member to recognize contributions made to the field of financial aid. Nominations are solicited from the membership prior to the annual fall conference. The selection committee is made up of prior Missouri award recipients. Normally, the Missouri Award is presented at the fall conference, however because Vicki Mattocks was not able to attend, the selection committee let the conference attendees in on the secret of who was selected, swore them to secrecy and plotted with her staff to plan a presentation on MSU’s campus.”
Taylor Health and Wellness was among several other college facilities honored at the White House as a White House Health Campus. The event, which occurred Jan. 13, featured First Lady Michelle Obama speaking on how the colleges had made efforts to improve student health and wellness. Jerilyn Reed was on hand to receive the recognition and represent Missouri State University.
The first payroll is the best time each year to check your deductions and make sure everything is correct for the rest of the year. As you know, Open Enrollment was held from October 3rd to December 1st, 2016. That was the period during which employees reviewed/elected/declined/ or made changes to their benefits for the 2017 calendar year. We encourage employees to check their most recent payroll stub to ensure accuracy with that review and the choices made.
