Fifteen Missouri S&T employees have been honored for their contributions to the university.
The winners were nominated by faculty, staff and students, and then selected by a group of Staff Council members. Winners are selected based on their job performance, relationship with associates and dedication to Missouri S&T.
Twelve staff members received the 2021 Staff Excellence Award. They are:
Each awardee will receive a certificate and a copy of Forged in Gold by Dr. Larry Gragg.
In 2019, S&T Staff Council created a new award for a staff member who is new to campus (worked at S&T for up to two years) and who makes a positive impact. Angelica Nuno, finance and accounting specialist in fiscal services, received the 2021 Outstanding Newcomer Award.
Also new to Staff Council in 2019 was the Outstanding Faculty Award. This award recognizes a faculty member who is actively engaged in supporting staff across campus. Dr. Daryl Beetner, professor of engineering in electrical and computer engineering, received the 2021 Outstanding Faculty Award.
In addition to the staff and faculty excellence awards, Staff Council presented the Jan Buhlinger Spirit Award to Amanda Kossuth, academic advisor in the S&T advising center. The award is named for the late Jan Buhlinger, a former Missouri S&T staff member and member of Staff Council. Recipients are selected by Staff Council based on their Missouri S&T spirit.
