February 27, 2008
The 2008 staff recognition celebration, open to all UNH community members, will be held Friday, May 2, in the Granite State Room of the MUB from 9:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
President Mark Huddleston and the OS, PAT and EE council chairs will host the event that this year honors 211 longtime employees for service ranging (in increments of five) from 10 to 40 years, for a combined total of 4,025 years.
A list of the individuals being recognized can be found at http://www.unh.edu/hr/pod/. One list is sorted by years of service; the second list is sorted by department. Check to see if a colleague is being recognized and plan on attending this special annual event.
This year, there are three employees each who have 40 years of service: Shirley Provost, who works in the dean’s office of the graduate school; Paul Sawyer of Computing and Information Services; and Antoinette Searles of Human Resources. And additional 12 workers have been at UNH for 35 years.
In addition to the longevity acknowledgments, the 2008 recipients of the Presidential Award of Excellence will also be announced during the staff recognition program.
Two PAT, two OS and one EE staff member are selected each year for outstanding service and commitment to the university. The nomination process and detailed information about the awards is available online at http://www.unh.edu/staffexcellence/.
There is still time to nominate a staff member (OS, PAT, or EE with at least 3 years of service) who demonstrates excellence through outstanding performance in their position and has a record of dedication to, and a concern for, the university community.
To make a nomination, go to http://nominations.unh.edu/. The deadline is March 21.
For more information or for questions regarding eligible staff members, contact Chris VanHorn 2-0519 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Supervisors who have employees that fit the longevity criteria but have not received letters inviting them to the recognition celebration should also contact her.
