Several employees have been recognized 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 2013 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 on Tuesday 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. Kathy Eastwood, professor of physics and astronomy, received the Outstanding Faculty Adviser Award at last month’s faculty awards ceremony, and Randy Shannon, senior academic adviser for the College of Arts and Letters, was presented with the Professional Adviser of the Year Award during the May 7 luncheon with President Haeger.
