Trsek Wins Federal Women's Award

The 11th Annual Glenn Federal Women's Program Award was recently presented to S. Erline Trsek during a Women's History Month observance at NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland.

This annual award is traditionally given to recognize the contributions women in government are making within their workplace and community. Trsek received this year's award in the non-supervisory category after being nominated by three of her colleagues as a positive role model for women in the Federal workforce and for her exemplary leadership skills.

"Erline brings enthusiasm and persistence to everything she does. She is invaluable to our organization," said Janeal Oprea, chief of the Customer Interface Branch of Glenn's Computer Services Division and Trsek's supervisor.

Trsek has held various leadership positions in Glenn's Business and Professional Women's (BPW) organization and is a member of Glenn's Speakers' Bureau with over 70 presentations made to organizations throughout Ohio. She also actively mentors young women at Glenn and within the greater community through the BPW Individual Development Program and the Lake Erie Girl Scout Council/NASA Program.

Currently, Trsek is a Program Analyst in the Customer Interface Branch of the Information Systems Division at Glenn, where she is responsible for contract management, budget analysis and approval of all computer hardware and software purchases at Glenn. Having joined Glenn in 1965 as a secretary, Trsek was promoted in 1975 to the position of administrative assistant after completing an upward mobility program. She subsequently held positions in the Advanced Communications Technology Satellite Office as well as the Space Station Directorate.

The Glenn Federal Women's Program Awards are administered as a joint effort between Glenn's Federal Women's Program and Women's Advisory Group. Nominees are judged for leadership roles, goal setting, self-motivation and membership in organizations.
