Huntington, Ind.—Recipients of the Huntington University Peer Award for the month of March are Kristina Wust and Deb Cherry.

Deb Springer, library secretary, passed the Peer Award to Kristina Wust. Wust is the cashier and has been with the university for one year.

In recognizing Wust, Springer said, “Kristina has enormous responsibilities in her position as cashier in the Business Office. We would all like to know how she keeps those debits and credits balanced! She receives deposits and disburses petty cash for all the offices on campus and interacts with the students as they take care of their financial obligations. She is always very efficient and cheerful and performs her duties with a servant’s heart. Kristina has a positive attitude and always offers words of encouragement. I always feel blessed after talking to her. I love her big smile. Even though we don’t work in the same building on campus, it is a pleasure to say I work with her at Huntington University.”

Deb has a wonderful spirit of cheerfulness that always brightens my day. Every time I see Deb, she is smiling and has a kind word.
