Staff elects new council president

Cougar News Staff

Building bridges and keeping communication lines open are among Angie Shorttis top priorities this year as she plans to provide leadership to the organization focused mainly on staff issues.

As newly elected Staff Council president, Shortt, director of communications for the Cullen College of Engineering, is enthusiastic about the staff election results and looks forward to future ventures.

"Itis very exciting that we will have a new president/chancellor on board for UH, and that will give me the opportunity to make fresh connections while pushing forth staff issues," Shortt said.

One of her concerns is the pressure of following her predecessor, Jeff Fuller, assistant director or student outreach services in the Office of Admissions, who served as Staff Council president for two consecutive one-year terms and will step down this fall.

"For the past two years, Staff Council has had the incredible leadership of Jeff Fuller and my biggest challenge will be filling his shoes," Shortt said in a press release. "As president, (Fuller) has been instrumental in creating relationships with administrators and staff around campus and increasing the awareness of staff advocacy."

Shortt served as Staff Council vice president from 2002-03, its secretary the previous year and co-chaired Cougar First Impressions.
