A University of Houston Libraries staff member was honored at the 2018 UH Staff Excellence Reception.
A select group of University employees is honored each year through the President’s Excellence Awards. Shanequea White, UH Libraries department business administrator, won the 2018 President’s Excellence Award for Community Service. White, a UH alumna (BBA ’13) and longtime staff member, has been active in UH Staff Council for many years, and has contributed to the success of many campus-wide efforts, such as the Sock & Blanket Drive and the Spring Egg Hunt. Outside of UH, White is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, an organization whose purpose is to provide assistance and support through established programs in local communities throughout the world. In addition, White is pursuing her MBA at University of Houston-Downtown.
White is dedicated to helping others. “Community service is very important to me,” she said. “It allows me to give back to individuals in need, as well as to UH and the Houston community.” With the President’s Excellence Award, she is proud to continue her family’s legacy in both UH service and volunteerism. Her mother, grandmother, and aunt also attended UH and were longtime UH staff members, and are active in community service efforts as well.
