Nov. 21, 2003

KALAMAZOO--Twelve staff members at Western Michigan University have been selected to receive fall 2003 semiannual Staff Service Excellence Awards.

The winners were selected by a committee of peers from the participating employee groups of AFSCME, APA, MSEA, POA and PSSO. The recipients will each receive $100 and a commemorative certificate.

The recipients are Teresa M. Cronkhite, Bernhard Center Dining Service, from the AFSCME ranks and 11 members of the Staff Compensation System: Kimberly Cho, CELCIS; George Boston, University Libraries; Mary Lou Brooks, blindness and low vision studies; Amy Burns, College of Education; Betsy Drummer, business information systems; Turea Jordan, finance and commercial law; Pamela McCartney, chemistry; Yolanda Mihalko, teaching, learning and leadership; Carol Reid, Academic Skills Center; John Brusk, health promotion and education; and Linda Ickes, Career and Student Employment Services.

The SSEA were designed to honor employees who exhibit excellence in their service to the University, far beyond normal job expectations. The 2003-04 fall and spring semiannual award recipients will also be candidates for the 2004 annual awards, which include a $1000 prize and will be announced in May.
