March update

Our division is the spring/summer sponsor for the UNT Food Pantry. Our contribution of non-perishable food and toiletries helps students in need. We will again collect items from now through July 2019. Boxes are put in division offices throughout the month of March and early April to collect items. A list of most needed items is on each of the boxes.

Division employees are encouraged to show their spirit and passion for work at UNT and in the division with a 3 minute or less Spirit Video. This year’s meeting theme is “Better Together.” Spirit Videos can reflect the theme or focus on team spirit. Those videos are due by April 30 to Hurley 213 or email to Charla.Friday@unt.edu.

February updatePhoto of Vernice "FlyGirl" Armour

Our honored guest speaker for this year’s Division Wide Meeting is Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour, who was the first African American female combat pilot in the United States. Her message is one of persevering through hardship to achieve your goals. Armour propelled herself from beat cop to combat pilot in a record-breaking three years. She has seen a lot of "firsts" in her career, prior to joining the Marines she was the first African American female to serve as a police officer in Tempe, Arizona, she was number one in her flight school class, and she was named 2001 Camp Pendleton Female Athlete of the Year. She is a former captain in the United States Marines who has been inspiring people since 2007 with her message to make gutsy moves and create breakthrough results.
