Charlotte Simpson, accounting technician in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Communication Services, has been named Secretary of the Year by the campus chapter of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Secretaries’ Association (NCCESA).

The association honored Simpson at a recent campus luncheon, presenting her with a certificate and a $75 award.

“Charlotte has provided invaluable financial guidance and accountability to me and my department head predecessors, through both good and lean budget years – always with a good-natured determination that budget matters be held to the highest accounting standards,” said department head Dee Shore in Simpson’s nomination letter.

An N.C. State employee for 18 years, Simpson has been an active member of the NCCESA since 1991. She has served for the past three years as treasurer and finance chair, and she has held a number of positions on Association committees. In 2004, Simpson won Awards for Excellence at both the college and university levels, and she was a nominee for the State Employees’ Award for Excellence. She also was the 2003 winner of the NCCES Foundation Search for Excellence Award.
