Atkins Award Nominations for ‘Unsung Heroes’ Due Feb. 3

Each year, through the presentation of the Larry Atkins Staff Awards, the University Staff Council recognizes UMW employees who provide exemplary service to the University and who are the unsung heroes of our offices. Larry Atkins was one of the first employees to receive the “We Couldn’t Do It Without You Award.”

The USC is now accepting nominations for the Atkins Award. Any administrative faculty, wage and/or classified employee may be nominated by any other member of the University community. Three UMW employees will be selected (one from each of the above classifications).

The deadline for submitting nominations for the awards is noon on Friday, Feb. 3, 2023. The 2022-23 Atkins Award winners will be announced at a special event to take place later this spring.
