Several employees were honored this week for excelling in their professional roles, promoting a positive sense of community in the workplace and actively supporting the mission of Northern Arizona University.

Ten NAU employees were selected for the 2014 President’s Achievement Award, considered the highest staff recognition from the university. Classified staff and service professionals are eligible to be nominated by peers or supervisors. The recipients, pictured below, each received a $1,000 award and were honored at a luncheon this week hosted by President John Haeger.

Two advisers, also pictured below, were named Advisers of the Year for impacting student success, demonstrating mastery of advising skills and advancing the campus advising community. Gary Dunagan, senior lecturer for Health Sciences, received the Faculty Adviser of the Year Award at last month’s faculty awards ceremony, and Katie Sheridan, senior academic adviser for the Honors Program, was presented this week with the Professional Adviser of the Year Award. Both advisers received a $1,000 award.
