Hernandez: Love one of the biggest assets at Angelo State
How one unsung development professional serves Angelo State admirably well
This column is a first in a series of unsung heroes in the Concho Valley.
You can see that smile from miles away waving at you like only a smile can do. That welcoming face makes you feel like you belong wherever you see her. Her personality is life-sized, yet she remains humble by all accounts from those close to her.
To work in the university setting, like in all organizations, requires many different skills and personalities.
In sports, there’s a concept of the dream team. Putting just star players together and making it work.
Now, that’s one way success can be had, but one could arguably say that having different personalities and temperaments make for a healthier team. Know your role, do it well, and you can get noticed.
For Jenny Wyatt Love, her service as the Director of Development, is admirably and one can see that just from observing her extroverted personality.
Love was born and raised in San Angelo. She graduated from Angelo State, and knows the campus in a holistic way. Along with others in that department, she deals with donor relations for not only corporate sponsors but people of all walks of life.
Now, if you were to ask her, she’d defer to her staff both below her, above her, or people that actually make Angelo State great: it’s students.
Still, it’s a skill not seen by most people.
And it’s impressive. You may be asking how I know?
Well, because she has provided counsel and a listening ear to someone who is still trying to figure out life.
So next time you see her at an Angelo State event, go up and introduce yourself to her.
You’ll be better for it.
Buy her a Red Bull.
Ask her about her interests.
Learn about her family.
And Tell her that her humble friend Ray Gonzalez told you to introduce yourself to her.
She would LOVE that.
