Staff Spotlight: Meet Monica Ingold
Utah State University presents Monica Ingold, staff member, business assistant, and office manager of the USU History department. Monica is celebrating her twentieth year at USU and has won the Light of Old Main Award for her enduring work with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Since 1996, Monica has faithfully served the history department, despite several job opportunities elsewhere. She says, “The camaraderie within the department has been wonderful. I know there are departments where people don’t get along, but this department has been amazing. They are not only colleagues, but they are friends with each other too. That makes working here pleasant and a lot of fun.” After retirement in July, Monica plans to spend more time with her grandchildren and take more vacations. She loves to camp, travel with friends, and has even been known to reenact mountain-man rendezvous with the Old Ephraim Mountain Man Club. Thank you Monica for everything you have done for Utah State! We will miss you!
