Melinda Rodgers and the Middle Georgia State University Enrollment Call Center team have
received a Silver Award for service excellence from University System of Georgia Chancellor
Hank Huckaby.

Rodgers and her team's recognition is in the category of Front Desk/Help Center service
excellence. Gold, silver and bronze awards are given.

Another Middle Georgia State employee, Eyvonne Tapper, a Residence Life coordinator, earned
honorable mention in the Individual of the Year category of the annual awards program.

The Chancellor's Service Excellence Awards were created to honor University System employees
who have gone “above and beyond” their normal job responsibilities. This year's awards
ceremony took place Wednesday, Oct. 21, at Georgia Perimeter College's Clarkston Campus.

Melinda Rodgers joined Middle Georgia State in 2014 as manager of the University's Call
Center, established as a one-stop-shop where students and prospective students can get
answers to their questions over the phone or via online portal. Her current title is
Enrollment Services project manager.

Eyvonne Tapper joined Middle Georgia State in 2007 as monitor in Anderson Hall, a residence
hall on the Cochran Campus. She now works on the Macon Campus as Residence Life coordinator.
