Congratulations to Solomon Valentine, who manages the division of adult and geriatric health, on being selected the 2017 Staff of the Year.
In his nominations, Solomon was said to possess “a special gift when it comes to the extra mile,” to be the ultimate deliverer of customer service, to be dependable on teams, dedicated and reliable, caring and sincere.
Described as unfailingly positive, upbeat, courteous and thoughtful to everyone, Solomon has also earned a reputation for working tirelessly to improve functions and processes within the School, volunteering to take on whatever needs doing to assist colleagues or faculty.
“We thank Solomon for the many contributions he brings to the School and our community,” said Nena Peragallo Montano, dean of the UNC School of Nursing. “He is well deserving of this award, and we are privileged to work with him.”
