Staff and Administrative employees of the CVM were recognized for their dedication and hard work that is vital to CVM’s success in educating students, animal care and research. In total, seven people were honored – five receiving Staff Recognition Awards, one Dean’s Award and one Deborah Hatch Czerkawski Award.
Nominated by colleagues, the Staff Recognition Awards honor employees who consistently go above and beyond their normal job duties to support the CVM. Those recognized were: Sharron Barney, Clinical Sciences; Amy Bylsma, Dean’s Office; Derrick Calloway, Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology; Lori Carden, Pathobiology; and Lynda King, recently retired from Pathobiology.
The Dean’s Award, given to a non-CVM employee who performs duties for the college, was awarded to Raymond Anderson of Facilities. Anderson, who is retiring at the end of August, is a painter and has worked diligently on a number of projects in the CVM to ensure a welcoming atmosphere.
The Deborah Hatch Czerkawski Award was given to Nancy Morrison, research associate at the Scott-Ritchey Research Center in the CVM. The award is given to honor a staff or administrative CVM employee whose contributions reflect the character, virtue and attributes of Czerkawski, who passed away in 2009.
The program also included recognition of employee’s longevity service to Auburn and the university’s Spirit of Excellence Award winner from the CVM.
