The North Carolina Association of Education Office Professionals has chosen Dr. Lillian Rorie as the 2013-14 Katrina Miller Administrator of the Year.

Rorie, the Union County Public Schools Director of Human Resources Support Services, was recognized March 27, 2014, at the state NCAEOP conference in Greensboro.

In one of the nomination letters, Rorie was recognized for supporting and encouraging her staff to attend workshops, participate in meetings and get involved in UCAEOP.

“Over the years, she has supported members of her staff who have held leadership roles on District level, giving them time away from their duties to participate in the events of the district,” the letter said. “She has shown support of their achievements by attending the functions on the district and state level.”

It noted that Rorie recognized that every staff member makes an important contribution to the educational system.

Rorie won at the state level after having been chosen the Union County Association of Education Office Professionals Administrator of the Year last year and then went on to be the NCAEOP District Seven winner of the same title.

Rorie, who began her career with UCPS in 1979, is known for her philosophy of always treating others with respect and dignity, and is frequently heard telling her staff to always “do the right thing.”

Other awards she has received include the Women of Excellence Community Service Award, the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Community Doves Service and Leadership Award and the HOLLA (Helping Our Loved Ones Learn and Achieve) 2013 Community Impact Award.
