Theresa Sims Earns Diversity Certification

UA Human Resources recognized Local 965 member Theresa Sims with the award of a Diversity Certificate on January 29th. Theresa, who is one of only 28 UA employees to qualify for the award, earned the recognition for her commitment to diversity by participating in a 20-hour program that included classroom training, community service, self-study, and a personal impact statement that described her intentions to further the goals of diversity and inclusion on campus.

On behalf of all the members of AFSCME Local 965, we congratulate Sister Theresa and further express our appreciation for her dedication and service to our community in organizing and conducting the AFSCME Christmas Toy Drive that was a part of her community service hours. Through her leadership in this important community service project, numerous children from low-income families in Northwest Arkansas had a brighter holiday season and an understanding of the spirit of giving that is the essence of the Christmas season as well as the concern for the community by the members of our union.
