We are excited to announce Leslie Gonzalez, Zachary Tate Porter and Lloyd (Bud) Shenefelt were honored with a Certificate of Recognition for Contributions to Students at the 32nd annual Parents' Recognition Awards Ceremony held March 6th.
The awards presented at the Willa Cather Dining Complex were earned through nominations made by parents of Nebraska students. The honors provide positive feedback to faculty and staff about their work and relationships with students, giving recognition in an area often overlooked in the formal rewards system.
The Parents Association solicits nominations through an annual mailing, asking parents to nominate a faculty or staff member who has made a significant difference in their student's life. Nominations include a short explanation of why the employee was selected.
All who were nominated by at least one parent or student and who are still with the university received a certificate. The annual recognition ceremony was organized by the Office of Student Affairs and co-sponsored by the Teaching Council and the Parents Association.
