The College of Arts and Sciences annual Staff Recognition Luncheon was held on Monday, October 3, in the Livak Ballroom at the Davis Center.  As part of that event, I had the pleasure of announcing the winners of the 2011 Dean’s Staff Awards for Superior Performance.  These awards recognize outstanding effort and achievement in the support of the mission of the College. Each award winner receives a cash award of $250 from the Dean’s office and has her name engraved on a commemorative plaque displayed in the reception area of the Dean’s office. 

Because there were no nominees this year for the Technical Support Award, two staff members were chosen to receive awards for Superior Administrative Support:  Vibeke Burley, Administrative Coordinator in the Geography Department, and Patricia Corcoran, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs in the Dean’s Office.  Special commendations were also given to Administrative Coordinators Salli Griggs (Sociology), Srebrenka Sehovic (Geology), and Janet Sobieski (German and Russian).
