HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Carolyn Lundy, a native of Huntsville, Ala., has received a Federal Women's Program 2011 Outstanding Achievement Award from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville in commemoration of Women's Equality Day for outstanding administrative achievement consistently displayed with a customer-focused attitude, accomplishments and a conscientiousness that is truly commendable.
Lundy is the senior human resources specialist for the Marshall Center's Position Classification Program in the Office of Human Capital. Appointed to the position in 2010, her responsibilities include coordinating the center's Work from Anywhere Program; consulting assigned organizations for their full range of human resources management services; and performing fact finding, validation, analysis and comprehensive evaluation of a wide variety of complex, novel and/or controversial human resources actions across the center.
The Federal Women's Program 2011 Outstanding Achievement Awards recognize civil service employees in four categories -- professional, administrative, supervisory and clerical -- for exceptional service to the Marshall Center and the U.S. space program. Women's Equality Day is commemorated each year on Aug. 26 by proclamation of the president of the United States to honor women gaining the right to vote.
Lundy and three other honorees received their awards Aug. 16 during Marshall's Annual Honor Awards Ceremony where the center honored those who made significant achievements to NASA's mission at an agency level.
Lundy began her NASA career in 1972 as a temporary clerk typist, and entered into the center's Cooperative Education Program in 1973 as a student trainee. Graduating in 1977 from Alabama A&M University in Huntsville with a bachelor's degree in business administration and management, she joined NASA fulltime in 1978 as a personnel staffing specialist.
From 1978 to 1999, Lundy held several human resource positions including personnel staffing specialist and employee relations, employee development specialist, personnel staffing specialist for recruitment, and personnel management specialist. Her responsibilities for Marshall and NASA included staffing, recruitment, relocation travel, performance, employee relations, classification and position management. In addition, she was the center's Cooperative Education Program coordinator from 1980 to 1988.
Her awards during her NASA career include a Space Flight Honoree Award in 2001 for dedication to quality work and flight safety; and a Silver Snoopy award in 2009 for outstanding contributions to the human spaceflight program. Lundy also is the recipient of Marshall and NASA Group Achievement, On-the-Spot Individual Achievement, Time-Off, Sustained Superior Performance, Peer and Marshall Certificate of Appreciation awards.
