Published: Nov 29, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 29, 2012) — On Wednesday, Nov. 28, the University of Kentucky recognized faculty and staff from across campus for excellence in furthering UK’s philanthropic efforts at the annual Terry B. Mobley Awards ceremony.

 

This year’s award winners included Dr. Randall G. Rowland, professor of surgery, College of Medicine, and president and chief executive officer of the Markey Cancer Foundation; Amy Nelson Young, director of grants and community assets, The Art Museum at the University of Kentucky; J. Ford Stanley, director of gift and estate planning, UK Office of  Development; Anne D. Vanderhorst, associate director of annual giving, UK Office of Development; and Kyle Larimore, support staff associate, UK Office of Development.

 

Mike Richey, UK’s vice president for development and chief development officer, congratulated the award winners at the ceremony and underscored the importance of private philanthropy for the university.

 

“I am very proud of all our development staff and others across campus who work hard to advance the university through private philanthropy,” Richey said. “Their efforts, and the generosity of UK alumni and friends combine to help the university make life better for all Kentuckians through its  historic mission of education, research, service and outreach.”

 

Recipients were nominated by UK staff and faculty. Each award consists of an honorarium generated by the Terry B. Mobley Awards Endowment and an engraved julep cup. Recipients’ names will also be added to a recognition wall located in the Sturgill Development Building on campus.

 

Rowland won the 2012 Development Service Award. This honor is conferred upon a UK administrator, faculty or staff member who demonstrates extraordinary support for development efforts at the university, and who is also a strong advocate for UK philanthropy.

 

Young and Stanley each received a 2012 Professional Achievement Award. This recognition is given to a professional staff member who has UK development tenure of five or more years, and who consistently demonstrates excellent work performance, great success, and has attained outstanding achievement and impact as a development professional.

 

Vanderhorst won the 2012 Rising Achievement Award. This honor is given to a professional staff member who has UK development tenure of less than five years, and who demonstrates excellent work performance, great success, and potential for further outstanding achievement and impact as a development professional.

 

Larimore received the 2012 Front Line Award which is presented to a support staff member to recognize outstanding performance related to philanthropic efforts at UK.

 

The Mobley Awards are designed to honor the distinguished development career of Terry B. Mobley by recognizing and rewarding staff and faculty for outstanding performance and personal achievement in the field of development. Mobley served the University of Kentucky for 27 years as chief development officer and retired as vice president for institutional advancement.
