Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce the recipients of the 2019 College Awards. These individuals have been chosen as the result of their consistently high performance and/or their outstanding service to the College. In the future, we will hold a College-wide event to honor them.

I'd like to personally thank Dr. Caroline Schauer and the entire Awards and Recognition Committee for their diligence in working with each of the departments to identify and nominate these exceptional individuals.

Congratulations to all of you.
