Meet Lavelle Hayes
I am Lavelle Hayes and I am a Budget Analyst in the Budget Department. I monitor departmental operating budgets and do monthly and quarterly close out. Our department’s busiest time of the year is June, which is the end of the fiscal year. I’ve been at UNCSA since September of 2018.
An interesting part of my job is learning the different schools in an arts university compared to the schools or departments in a liberal arts-based university. A School of Filmmaking budget is very different from an athletic department budget. To understand budget, you need to understand the department. As I work with more departments, I can help more in their budget planning to accomplish their goals.
My biggest surprise was attending campus night’s “The Nutcracker” performance with my wife. The talent of here is amazing! I heard people had to be good to get into UNCSA, but wow!
I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from NC A&T University (Aggie Pride!!!) and a Master of Business Administration in Accounting from Capella University. Before UNCSA, I worked at WSSU for 10 years in contract and grants, accounting and budget. My favorite thing to do outside of work is spending time with my wife and son – be it going out to dinner or at home watching a good movie.
