POSTED ON BEHALF OF NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA A&M COLLEGE

Miami, Oklahoma – Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014 – The Staff Association at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO), announced that Zulema “Zuly” Ware is the Staff Member of the Month for Feb. 2014. Ware came to NEO in 2002 and served as the campus print shop assistant and was recently promoted to print shop manager.

“I was surprised,” Ware said, when she found out she was nominated again. She was previously awarded Staff Person of the Month in 2011.

Ware produces employee business cards, promotional flyers, office/personnel forms, athletic posters, campus brochures, the president’s annual report, newsletters, staff handbook, college catalogue, and the football media guide for NEO.

“Zuly works very hard and is an office of one,” said Katie Dewey, who nominated Ware. “She serves as her own secretary and graphic designer. She operates the print shop by herself, handles multiple projects at once, designs advertisements, checks inventory, answers the phone, and operates all the machinery as well.”

Ware is from Panama City, Panama. Growing up, she said she loved drawing and had a wide imagination, fueling her interest in graphic design.

She attended the University of Panama and earned her degree in graphic design. She then worked in the printing industry for seven years, and later moved to America after she married.

In 2000, Ware had gone back to school in Columbus, Kan. and earned a two year degree in graphic design and print technology at Southeast Kansas Technical School.

“When I came here I did not know any English,” Ware said. “That was one of the main reasons I went to school again.

She already knew her profession but needed to learn the language.

Ware is not shy of adversity. Preceding her time at school, she was in a serious car accident in the summer of 1998. She was hospitalized for three months, and in a wheel chair for a year when she started school, and then on crutches for another year.

She attended school physically hindered and learned English all in the same time frame.

In 2000, Ware moved to Miami, Okla., and began working at Sooner Printing. Then in 2002, she came to NEO working in the print shop.

When asked what her favorite part about her job was at NEO, she responded, “I like the people. They are really nice and made me feel like I was part of a team.”

She has two children, Lucerys Ware, 16 and Levi Ware, 15. She also earned a title as a pastor, going to school for four years, when she was living in Panama. Today, she uses her experience and knowledge in theology to help the local Hispanic community. It is all volunteer work, preaching at her church, teaching, and helping as a translator for the people who need it. She also encourages Hispanic adolescents to attend college, when she notices a lack of interest in their future.

She stresses the importance of setting goals and what an education can give someone. Ware is an example of a smart, hard-working woman, who not only excels in graphics and print work, but also in her community. There is no question of why she earned Staff Person of the Month again.
