“If you don’t take pride in your work, you’re probably in the wrong job.”

It’s one of CCEE Director of Finance and Administration Ginger McGlamery favorite sayings, and something that has stuck with her since she first started working at NC State in 1988 as a research administrator for the Department of Computer Science. 

Since then, she’s worked in numerous positions including as an assistant director of fiscal operations for the College of Education, a systems and compliance accountant in contracts and grants, and a business analyst for enterprise application services for the Office of Information Technology. In 2009, she was promoted to director of finance and administration for CCEE. 

McGlamery recently celebrated 25 years of state service, and was recognized with an invitation to the Quarter Century Club breakfast at Chancellor Randy Woodson’s residence and with a brick from the Bell Tower renovation project with a plaque attached to it. The handmade bricks — referred to as “swirl bricks” — are some of the first laid bricks at the university and date back to the early 1900s.

“It feels really special to receive recognition for this service milestone,” McGlamery said. “Having breakfast with fellow members of the Quarter Century Club and the chancellor was a wonderful experience.”

Throughout the years, McGlamery’s favorite part of being an NC State employee has been feeling like part of a family and relationships she’s built with co-workers across campus. being part of a family and the relationships that I have built with fellow employees across campus.

“My favorite aspect of working for CCEE is being part of faculty, staff, and students’ career progression; witnessing and being part of the departmental growth and prosperity and feeling I had a small part in the department’s success. From a business management perspective, my hope and goal is to have an impact such that our faculty, staff, and students take pride in their experiences with our department and they experience a high level of customer service with our business office.”

“Ginger has an extraordinary talent for building a team and finding ways to leverage the collective strengths of team members to achieve organizational goals,” said CCEE Head Jackie MacDonald Gibson. “She has been a tremendous asset in managing financial and personnel operations of the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at NC State.”
