NORMAN — Brad Burnett, University of Oklahoma associate vice president for enrollment and student financial services, has been selected as the 2014 Regents’ Award for Superior Staff on the OU Norman campus.
In the nomination letter written by his supervisor, Matthew Hamilton, vice president for enrollment and student financial services and registrar, he described Burnett as a leader, a hard worker and a loyal OU employee.
“Brad has the kind of personality that makes others want to work with him. He fosters team unity by being a great team member and leader,” Hamilton said.
Burnett served as the functional project manager for the implementation of oZONE, an online portal that provides students, faculty and staff with a way to take care of their university business needs in one place.
He has championed some of the most creative programming found in financial aid operations in the country, which include group financial sourcing programs helping OU collaborate with the Oklahoma College Savings Program and OU gift cards to allow relative and friends to give the “gift of education” to current students. Burnett also has worked with the K-20 Center as a contributor to their financial education gaming module.
The award was presented at the Norman campus staff awards ceremony Tuesday in the Oklahoma Memorial Union.
