Commendation of Gina Worthington


WHEREAS, Gina Worthington has performed admirably and with unflagging good humor as the student assistant in the Academic Senate office for almost 10 years; and

WHEREAS, Gina has demonstrated exceptional talent while working with the Academic Senate, having unusual success in weird tasks such as  locating the report “... with the hot pink cover,” to finding misfiled letters and an endless parade of obscure intersegmental documents; and

WHEREAS, Gina has demonstrated saintly patience, considering the variety of assignments which have been given to her, e.g., locating misplaced keys to the refrigerators, keeping the copier toner supply, answering idiotic questions, making MacDonald’s Runs for staff working late at night; and

WHEREAS, She has maintained her sense of balance while pursuing her doctoral degree in American Indian Studies; and

WHEREAS, The skills and competencies gained in the Academic Senate office will be invaluable in her new role as a university professor (after all, she has learned from the best); therefore be it

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University thank Gina Worthington with warm hugs for her superb and continued cheerful assistance and for her tolerance of the sometimes absent-minded staff and professors and wish her great success in her graduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, and much happiness in her life; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU confer the title of “student assistant emeritus” on Gina Worthington.
