It was a big day on Aug. 26 for UW-Green Bay faculty and staff… especially those whose outstanding work was recognized with Founders Association Awards for Excellence during the annual campus convocation.
Posing with their Founders Association awards outside the University Union are, from left, Prof. Andrew Kersten, scholarship; Prof. Lucy Arendt, teaching; Sandy Bohman of the library staff, classified support; Oneida Tribal Elder Maria Hinton and Prof. Cliff Abbott, award for collaborative achievement; accepting on behalf of Cyndie Shepard who was honored for community outreach, staff member Stephanie Cataldo-Pabich of the Phuture Phoenix Program; longtime purchasing director Mike Barry, institutional development; and campus facilities planner Paul Pinkson, academic support.
Prof. Abbott embraces Maria Hinton. The two were announced as recipients of the Founders Association Award for Excellence in Collaborative Achievement, for their work on the online Oneida Language dictionary.
