Shayda Hernandez honored as 2021 CBU Employee of the YearRiverside, Calif. (May 17, 2021) – Shayda Hernandez, a financial aid technician at California Baptist University, has been named Employee of the Year for 2021.

Hernandez was nominated by her supervisor and named CBU Employee of the Month for November 2020. She then was chosen as Employee of the Year by CBU’s Executive Council, which selects the Employee of the Year recipient from among staff members chosen as Employee of the Month during that academic year.

The 2021 Employee of the Year honor recognizes the professional service Hernandez, who started working at CBU in February 2019, provides in Financial Aid.

According to the nomination form, Hernandez strives to understand why something is done, rather than just understanding the process. This allows her to have a foundation on what is happening and to help create more efficient processes. Since her promotion to technician in early 2020, she reviewed and completed over 4,250 FAFSA verifications, which is a record in a single year.
