46 Staff Members Honored by University

Published: Oct 31, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 31, 2013) — The 46 winners of the fourth annual Outstanding Staff Awards; their friends and colleagues; and several campus leaders, including University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto, gathered at Spindletop Hall yesterday for a recognition luncheon.

 

Although the weather was a bit dreary, the mood was festive, enhanced by the performances of School of Music graduate quartet fellows, Maureen Kelly and William Ronning; and Iris Fordjour-Hankins, Alltech Vocal Scholar and doctoral candidate in Opera Theater, accompanied by UK School of Music faculty member, Tedrin Blair Lindsay.

 

“It’s a special pleasure to recognize our outstanding staff in this way – the many who work hard each day to represent the University of Kentucky, advance their college or unit, and support our impactful mission,” said President Capilouto. “I’m emboldened by their enthusiasm for our work and grateful for their many contributions.”

 

The President's Office and the Staff Senate sponsor and support the event with volunteers.

 

“The Staff Senate is very proud of the service that these individuals contribute to the university each and every day,” said Staff Senate Chair Jeffrey Spradling. “We recognize that our success as a university is achieved each and every day and is owing to the personal touches of our employees. The Staff Senate is particularly honored to be involved in recognizing the efforts of people who are recognized by their peers and supervisors for their outstanding work and daily leadership.”

 

"Since implementation of the program in 2010, honorees recognized have more than tripled from 15 to 46," according to Holly Jones Clark, the OSA program chair.

 

The OSA winners were all referred by their own work units as their most deserving employees of 2012-13.

 

The 46 OSA winners represented 18 colleges and administrative units that sponsor award programs, including the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, College of Arts and Sciences, Gatton College of Business and Economics, College of Communication and Information, College of Dentistry, College of Education, College of Engineering, College of Health Sciences, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, College of Public Health, Human Resources, Office of Development, Office of the Treasurer, Student Affairs, UK HealthCare, UK Libraries, and Undergraduate Education.
