Ruth Ann Easterwood has been an employee of UT for almost 22 years (as of Dec. 2014). She has spent 19 of those years in the Department of Social Foundations and Leadership. In this time she has received multiple nominations for the Outstanding Staff Award and won the award in 2012. She also received the Students First Award in 2012.

Ms. Easterwood is a valuable member of the department in her work with faculty, students, and staff. Of her work in the department, Ms. Easterwood says, “I assist faculty and students in my daily front line work for a busy department. I try to assist the students to the best of my ability with my years of accrued knowledge with their registration, and any internal issues/problems that arise for them as I have always known/felt that they are our customers and the reason that I have a job.”

Outside of UT her interests include assisting and working with seniors on day trips and outings and scouting for treasures at garage sales. She’s also known for her green thumb in the care of the plants around the department as well as her photography, particularly around campus. Below are a few examples of her artwork.
