I had the chance to ask one of the award recipients after Friday’s ceremony, how does it feel? “It is both refreshing and motivating”. She went on to explain that having the people around you acknowledge the value of all your effort and hard work is very rewarding. At the same time it boosts your energy to keep going and continue pushing the limits and exceeding expectations.
This is one of the reasons that each year, Dean Joe Phillips along with members of the Faculty and staff teams at Albers get together to celebrate Albers students who have managed to stand out from the crowd and make a difference in their particular programs, activities, and groups.
The event also had the presence of Father Steve, University President, who warmly congratulated each and every one of the awardees, taking a picture with each one of them. After the ceremony, the Dean hosted a brief reception at the Pigott Atrium to further salute the awardees and their families.
With the motivation to reach out to the Albers community, and have a new form of communication, Dean Phillips has started his own blog. Click here to read it!
