The Carolina Union is happy to announce Melissa Serrano Burns as the newly elected Carolina Union Employee Forum (CUEF) Chair for the 2015-2016 year. Current CUEF members and a panel of Carolina Union full-time staff interviewed Burns and selected her for the position, which was announced on April 28, 2015. In this role, Burns will serve as a representative for all student staff at the Carolina Union.
As Chair, Burns looks forward to getting to know all of her fellow employees: “Don't be afraid to introduce yourself!” Burns will ensure CUEF roles and responsibilities are fulfilled, facilitate meetings, and serve as the Carolina Union student staff representative on the Carolina Union Board of Directors.
Burns, a sophomore from Pataskala, OH, has already served on the CUEF board this past year, and has most recently served as the CUEF Secretary. When not working with CUEF, Melissa serves as a supervisor on the Operations Staff within the Union. She will serve as the Operations Scheduler next year.
Burns is also accomplished on the academic front. She is studying Biomedical Engineering, and hopes to work in the fields of prosthetics and surgery when she graduates from Carolina. When Melissa isn’t in the Union she is busy finding adventure with friends, the most recent excursion including a skydiving trip.
