Staff Council has selected Sherry Durkin as the 3rd Quarter Owl Star. Durkin is the system information coordinator for the Registrar's Office. She has worked at The W for 23 years in different capacities.

Durkin said, “I was surprised and honored to receive the Owl Star Award. It is nice to be recognized for the work that I do for the university.”

What Durkin enjoys the most about working at The W is the willingness of the campus community to assist others.

"The past several months have been a challenge as the Registrar’s Office went through changes. I truly appreciate the assistance and encouragement that was proved,” she said.

For Durkin the most rewarding part of her job is the interaction with students and helping them achieve their goals.
