Congratulations to the 2015 Distinguished Staff Award Nominees
On February 19, 2015, we gathered in the HUB Ballroom for our annual reception honoring the Distinguished Staff Award nominees. Our executive sponsor and Vice President for Human Resource Mindy Kornberg kicked off the festivities. We were fortunate to also have Johnese Spisso, our Chief Health System Officer for UW Medicine and Vice President for Medical Affairs, Denzil Suite, Vice President for Student Life, and Bob Stacey, Dean of Arts & Sciences, honor our nominees by speaking to the UW tenet they represent: Passion Never Rests, Be a World of Good, Together We Will, and Question the Answer. To the left are a few highlights from the reception. Congratulations to all of our nominees!
