Nominations are being accepted for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock 2019 Staff Achievement Awards through Friday, March 15. 

A $1,000 cash award is given to the top UA Little Rock staff member in 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 10:30 a.m. Friday, April 26, in the Engineering and Information Technology Building Auditorium with a reception to follow. 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 also award scholarships for employees who are furthering their education at UA Little Rock. The Staff Senate Scholarship is a $250 scholarship, and the Jerry Crittenden Employee Book Scholarship is a $75 book scholarship. Both scholarships will be awarded to staff members. Applications can be filled out online.
