MOUNT OLIVE -- Monica Holmes, manager of faculty records at Mount Olive College, received the J. William Byrd Award for Staff Excellence during the college's spring conference. The award is given in honor of Dr. J. William Byrd, president emeritus of the College.

Holmes joined the college in September 2001 as an administrative assistant in the Office of Academic Affairs. In that role she organized the master schedule, faculty data records, and evaluation process. Holmes was promoted to manager of faculty records in March 2010.

A co-worker who nominated Holmes for the award, said, "Monica is the most honest person I know. Her personality allows her to work with faculty in a direct and honest way that encourages and demands perfection. She is an advocate for the College mission, employees, and students. She is a professional in every sense of the word. She is the rock that supports Academic Affairs."

Holmes is married to Maurice Holmes. They reside in Mount Olive.
