Staff Senate Awards



Awards 2014


Congratulations!
The Staff Senate Award responses received this year doubled the number of nominations received last year. There were one hundred and two individuals nominated among the six EEOC categories and the Career Award.  The ETSU staff provided so many good and personal testimonies of how the nominated individuals continue to go above and beyond their job duties to help other ETSU staff. The Staff Senate Award committee had a difficult, but very rewarding review of each nomination received. This year's award winners  were announced at the Staff Senate Picnic on Friday, May 23rd. Each award winner received a two-thousand dollar check from the ETSU Foundation, a certificate of award signed by President Noland and the Staff Senate President, Lisa Belcher, and copies of all nomination letters presented on their behalf.  The 2014 Staff Senate Award Winners are:

Career Award = Constance Alexander

EEOC 1 = Bonnie Burchett

EEOC 3 = Sherry Armitage

EEOC 4 = Kathy Hawks

EEOC 5 = Loretta Carole Thomason

EEOC 6 = Tom Hill

EEOC 7 = Frances Hogsed


Outstanding staff at East Tennessee State University are honored by their peers each year through the Distinguished Staff Awards, which are presented at the university's Staff Picnic sponsored by the Staff Senate.  Each winner receives a $2,000 check, provided for this purpose by the ETSU Foundation, and a plaque from the Staff Senate acknowledging their achievement.

University employees nominate individuals for the awards based on one or more of these criteria: a staff member whose performance of assigned tasks deserves recognition and inspires other employees, positive attitude in working with others, commitment to the university community, and exercise of extraordinary courage.
