Melissa Rappley has received the University Staff Employee Appreciation Award for November at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Rappley, of Menomonie, is an associate in Athletics, University Recreation and in Health and Physical Education.

Her nomination states: “Melissa is Stout proud throughout. She volunteers for many athletic events and continually supports Blue Devil Athletics. She has completely streamlined our office and the flow of forms. When folks come into the office, she drops what she’s doing and goes above and beyond to help. She is a huge asset to our administration. She has to divide her time between Athletics, Urec and Health and Physical Education and does so seamlessly. We don’t know what we’d do without her.”

Chancellor Bob Meyer presents each winner with a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout coffee mug and a check for $100.
