Staff Member of the Year
September 2, 2009
The Staff Member of the Year Award is presented each year to a member of the Eckerd College staff who has demonstrated initiative, creativity or extra effort beyond his or her normal duties for a sustained period of time and has had a significant positive impact on the life of the College. The recipient of the award receives a plaque and a check.
This year's recipient of the Staff Member of the Year Award is critical in recruiting students, reassuring parents, attracting qualified faculty and staff, appealing to donors, and impressing the public by conveying vital information about the College in an accessible lively format. His resourcefulness is a constant source of surprise and delight to those who work with him, and his creativity has brought the College national recognition. His unfailingly cheerful demeanor and calm, constructive approach to solving problems make him a model of effective collaboration. As a result of his vision, leadership and commitment, the windows through which the world sees Eckerd College – its webpages – continue to evolve in ways in which we all take pride. Please join me in saluting as Staff Member of the Year for 2009, the epitome of cool, the Master of the Web, the one and only Casey Paquet.
