UA Little Rock employees, students, alumni, and community members can nominate an outstanding staff member through March 15 in three categories: personal achievement, service to the university, and community service.
The winners will receive a $3,000 award, distributed via payroll. The winners will be announced during a drop-in celebration from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 20. 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.
In addition to the Staff Achievement Awards, applications are available for the Staff Senate Scholarship, which is being increased to a $1,000 scholarship this year, and the Jerry Crittenden Employee Book Scholarship, a $75 book scholarship, for staff members who are furthering their education at UA Little Rock. Staff Senate will be awarding two of each scholarship.
