There are so many individuals that deserve to be applauded, as I have never seen a community come together like NIU has these past couple of weeks. However, Rachel Jurs-Lauderdale deserves to be applauded. She joined a Teams meeting and was ready for work, not only prepared for the meeting but prepared in her appearance for work. She was an inspiration for me to get up and get ready each day as if I was going to NIU, not to my home office. Thank you, Rachel!
