UK to Celebrate Outstanding Staff

Outstanding Staff Awards Ceremony

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 31, 2017) The annual University of Kentucky Outstanding Staff Awards (OSA) ceremony will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at the Woodford Reserve Club at Kroger Field.

The Office of the President and the UK Staff Senate sponsor OSA to recognize the professional accomplishments of staff across the university and the work of their colleges and units. Individuals who have been designated as outstanding staff of the year in their respective areas will be honored by President Eli Capilouto, Staff Senate Chair Jon Gent and others.

This past year has brought many new people and ideas to the Staff Senate, and Outstanding Staff Awards was not left out. For the first time there will be three awards given to staff members across the university. First, an award to staff from faculty; second, a staff member will be recognized by students; and finally, a staff member will be selected by the Staff Senate for a special honor.  

Registration is now open, and award sponsors may click here to register. The registration deadline is Sept. 22.  

Official invitations will be extended in the fall to honorees and other special guests. For questions regarding the OSA program, please contact Jon Gent, chair of the Staff Senate, at or 859-323-6540, or Brittany Begley, vice chair of the Outstanding Staff Awards event, at or 859-257-9242.
