Release Date: 12-10-2007
"Joan is a longtime CEMS employee who has been an invaluable resource to the College," Grasso said. One of the nominations noted, "Professionalism is not in just what you see, but what you get. And Joan Jordan delivers!" Another nomination emphasized the importance of recognizing long-term staff "who not only have valuable historical information but who also apply that information to forward thinking."
The UVM/CEMS Outstanding Staff Member Award was instituted in 2006 via a recommendation to the Dean by the CEMS Staff Advisory Council. This award provides CEMS staff and faculty with an opportunity to recognize staff for contributions made to the College in furthering the CEMS mission in research, teaching and service. Criteria for this award include: maintaining a positive attitude, exceeding job expectations, performing tasks beyond one's job description, making special contributions to the College, engaging in public service, and being a valued representative of the College.
Nominations were submitted by CEMS staff and faculty and the winner was chosen by the Dean, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, and Assistant Dean. Jordan received a $100 gift certificate to a restaurant of her choice and a $250 shopping certificate to the store of her choice.
"I was totally surprised!" she said. "It's great to be recognized in this way by the UVM faculty and staff."
Our congratulations to Joan on this well-deserved award.
