Annual Provost's awards offer recognition

By Steve Carr

Recipients of the 13th Annual Provost’s Outstanding Staff Awards were honored recently by the Provost’s Committee for Staff Assessment and Development (PCSAD) during a ceremony at University House.

Outstanding individual staff awardees include Nicu-Viorel Atudorei, Earth and Planetary Sciences; Kevin Kargacin, Bureau of Business and Economic Research; Lourdes McKenna, Economics, and Eleanor Maes, Physics and Astronomy (photo below.)

The outstanding workgroup honored was the electronic manuscripts team at UNM Press. The group includes Amy Elder, Dawn Hall, Robyn Mundy, Justin Parks, Sarah Ritthaler, Melissa Tandysh and Mina Yamashita (photo below.)

“Through their dedication to service, their interactions with others, and their willingness to take initiative, they embody the highest standards and ideals of the University of New Mexico,” said Brian Foster, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs.

The PCSAD organizes and coordinates the annual Outstanding Staff awards program and recommends candidates to the provost, who then makes the final decision on the awardees. The PCSAD was organized and formed in 1989 to assist the provost in determining what activities would provide UNM staff with opportunities for growth, recognition and service.
