Nominations open for staff achievement awards, scholarships

Nominations are being accepted for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock 2018 Staff Achievement Awards until Monday, March 19. 

A $1,000 cash award is given to the top employee in each of three categories: personal achievement, service to the university, and community service. Eligible employees are full-time regular classified and non-faculty/non-classified employees holding no academic rank.

The winners will be announced at the Staff Awards Ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday, April 20, in the Engineering and Information Technology Building Auditorium. Staff members who are celebrating work anniversaries, have graduated in the past year, and retiring will also be recognized.

The three categories for nominations are:

  •   Personal Growth-Recognition will go to an individual whose scholarship, research, or creative talent has been particularly outstanding.
  •   Ben Fry Service to UA Little Rock-Recognition will go to an individual who is distinctive in service through committees, special events, implementation of creative ideas or support and encouragement of others.
  •   Community Service-Recognition will go to an individual who has been particularly successful in organizing community events or had major achievements in civic, service, or specialty organizations/events.

Additionally, the Staff Senate will award scholarships for employees who are furthering their education at UA Little Rock. The Staff Senate Scholarship is a $250 award, and the Jerry Crittenden Employee Book Scholarship is a $75 book scholarship. Both scholarships will be awarded to two staff members.
