Linda D. Frederick, Student Support Services director, received the first "Above and Beyond" Award presented by the Southern University Board of Supervisors during its regular monthly meeting February 17, 2017.

The "Above and Beyond" Award was established to help inspire and motivate SU employees to reach their maximum performance. One award will be presented at the SU Board of Supervisors meetings each month. 

"This award honors outstanding achievements in the workplace, exceptional contributions toward efficiency and effectiveness of operations, special efforts in promoting workforce excellence, or outstanding service to the University community and constituents," SU Board Chair Ann A. Smith said.

Vice Chancellor of Community Outreach/University Advancement Gloria B. Moultrie describes Ms. Frederick as a quintessential leader in the Department of Student Support Services for more than 15 years. "She has an open-door policy for all program problems and interests, and is willing to offer her advice and professional expertise when needed," Mrs. Moultrie said.

Recipients of the award are nominated by their peers. The top three nominations are forwarded to the Board of Supervisors chair and vice chair for selection.

Nominations are due two weeks prior to all Board of Supervisors meetings. Contact Maya Riley Banks at or Michael Wells, at or call 225-771-4600, if you have questions or need information.


From 2006 to 2010, the New Orleans Police Department was led by two SUNO graduates -- Warren J. Riley (B'98, M'00) and Marlon Defillo (B'92, M'00).
