Gee Mail: President surprises a new batch of ‘Good EGGs’

President Gee interviewing Sosa

Eduardo Sosa, a research associate professor in the Statler College, is one of the featured 'Good EGGs' in a special edition of President E. Gordon Gee's Gee Mail.

In a previous Gee Mail, President Gordon Gee surprised and celebrated members of the West Virginia University family who embodied the five core Mountaineer values: service, curiosity, respect, accountability and appreciation. 

He’s back at it again. But this time, there’s an extra cherry on top. 

Gee playfully ambushed faculty and staff in their classrooms, labs or meeting rooms to present them with tokens of appreciation that included a shiny, new WVU Values Coin. The targets of Gee’s surprises were all former recipients of the coin, created in 2017 to recognize faculty and staff making a difference in the campus community. 

“In the interest of living our shared value of appreciation, I have asked each ‘Good EGG’ to pay it forward,” Gee said. “They will honor another faculty or staff member who personifies our values and present them with their own coin. 

“Because celebrating success is the best way to inspire more success.”
