Last month, the student project team of Webster University Memphis Naval Support Activity Mid-South’s Spring 1 Training and Development (HRDV 5610) class was awarded the Quality Cup Interest Level Award by the Mid-South Quality and Productivity Center in Memphis, Tennessee. Members of the team included team leaders Gino Hobbs and Brad Ross, along with student team members Tanya Baldon, Shirleen Clark, Kimberly Connelly, Chan Higgenbottom, Vanessa Johnson, Ashley Jones, Maurice Tolliver, Orlando Wilson and Treva Woods-Calhoun.

The Quality Cup Award honors teams and organizations that have made significant contributions to their employers’ quality improvement programs and exhibit “best practices.” The award is aligned with the former Rochester Institute of Technology/USA Today Quality Cup Team Award and the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. This award is the only team-based award nationally recognized the  Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Program in Washington, D.C.

With the support of Webster Memphis NSA director Joey Edwards and facilitation of academic advisor and instructor Harriet Browning, the student-led team sought to identify information and skills that would be essential to current and prospective students’ success. Upon collection of data and analysis, the team offered recommendations and innovative methods to better assist and prepare other students to succeed in their courses at Webster NSA.
