Support Staff of the Year Award

The NHS Dean’s Office is requesting nominations for the 2015-2016 NHS Support Staff of the Year Award. Those eligible for nomination are NHS administrative support staff (both classified and exempt) that have been in their position for at least one year, have been nominated by NHS faculty, administration, staff, and/or students, and have not received the award in the last five years. Nominees can be nominated by more than one person. The recipient of this award will be an individual who:

    • Shows concern for and helpfulness to others
    • Has pride in his/her job
    • Consistently exhibits excellent job performance
    • Performs actions above and beyond the call of duty
    • Adheres to safety procedures
    • Has a cooperative attitude
    • Displays university involvement

Upon receiving the nomination forms, the NHS Dean’s Office will conduct a review and select up to three finalists. One winner will be selected from the finalists. Qualities for which individuals will be selected are outstanding service, superior performance, exceptional efficiency, integrity and dedication to UNC and to fellow employees. We encourage nominators to give much time and attention to the form. More than one nominator may sign the form and additional comments and information is encouraged. Nominations will stay active for two years unless the staff member nominated is the recipient of the award. Nominators and nominees can request for the nomination to not roll to the second year.

The three finalists will be announced by the end of the fall semester. The award recipient will be announced at the NHS College-wide Meeting and Awards Ceremony in the spring. Along with recognition, the award recipient will receive an allocation of $200 to be used for work-related professional development.

Please complete a nomination form (below) and return to Kim Paxton in the NHS Dean’s Office in Gunter 1000, Campus Box 134 or through email at no later than November 20, 2015. If you have any questions, you may contact Kim at (970) 351-2893.
