Administrative Staff Recognition Recipient

The College of Pharmacy recognized two recipients of the College’s Staff Appreciation Program for April-June 2020, Shelia Moore and Hilary O’Meara! Shelia serves as the Executive Assistant in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Hilary serves as the Executive Assistant for the Northwest Campus.



Here are some of the comments provided in Shelia’s nominations.

  • Shelia is by far the best support for the Department of Pharmacy Practice. She not only manages routine responsibilities for the largest number of faculty in the college, but she also meets additional day to day requests with grace, patience, and efficiency. She is thoughtful, hard-working, and is a great problem solver. When I have needed assistance, she always rises above my initial request and often times completely takes the task off my plate! She truly exemplifies the values of integrity, respect, and teamwork of UAMS and deserves to be recognized.
  • Shelia is always friendly and willing to help out others. She never complains.
  • Though Sheila does not directly report to me, she is always willing to help out when our staff is absent. Nothing really seems to be too big of an ask for Sheila. She is always friendly and has worked in this role for many years, including a very challenging year when she encountered significant health issues. Thankfully, she is as good as new and hope she continues to support Pharmacy Practice for many years to come.
  • No one is more loved and more respected than Shelia! She is always positive and helpful, even under stressful circumstances. She also deserves recognition for her team-first attitude, being the first to help other staff members learn strategies to be successful in their jobs. We wouldn’t be the same without her!
  • Shelia is always willing to help anyone that needs it. She is an excellent resource and has a wealth of knowledge. She has helped myself and many of the support staff more times than I can count and she always has a smile on her face.

Here some of the comments provided in Hilary’s nominations.

  • Hilary works hard for all the COP students. She is very organized and she makes sure things get done. She keeps things running smoothly for the students and staff at the NW campus.
  • Hilary is truly one of the best and professional people I know. She truly cares about the students and the college She always goes above and beyond for everyone.
  • Hilary is the backbone of the NW campus. She truly cares about all of her students and goes above and beyond for all of us. There is nobody who is more deserving than her. Please consider awarding her. She is incredible.
  • Hilary goes above and beyond for students at the NW UAMS campus. She is always available when students need her, makes sure we have everything we need in a timely manner and greets us with a friendly face every morning. She deserves to be recognized for all of her hard work.
  • I don’t know what we would do without her in the pharmacy department. She makes sure we (students) know exactly is going on and keeps us on schedule in regards to class and extra-curriculars (IPPE associated tasks and other things involving the school as a whole). We would all be lost without her, she excels at all of her duties and takes on more responsibilities than one should and is an amazing person while doing it all.


Shelia and Hilary – we appreciate all that you do – THANK YOU!
