Stacy Adams, Martha Mamo, Don Lee, Christian Elowsky and Kim Todd, University of Nebraska–Lincoln Department of Agronomy and Horticulture faculty, were honored for their support to students during the annual Parents' Recognition Awards luncheon on March 1.
The Parents' Recognition Awards, presented in a ceremony in the Willa Cather Dining Complex, are earned through nominations made from parents of Nebraska students. Presented annually, the honors provide positive feedback to faculty and staff about their work with students. They also encourage good student and faculty relationships and provide recognition in an area often overlooked in the formal rewards system.
The Parents Association solicits nominations through an annual mailing, asking parents to nominate a faculty or staff employee who has made a significant difference in their student's life. Nominations include a short explanation of why this person was nominated.
All who were nominated by at least one parent or student and who are still with the university received a certificate. The annual recognition ceremony was organized by the Office of Student Affairs and co-sponsored by the Teaching Council and the Parents Association. Certificates of recognition for contributions to students were given during the ceremony. This is the 31st year Nebraska faculty and staff have received the awards from the Parents Association.
Adams, associate professor of practice, received his fourth award. Elowsky, assistant professor of practice, is a first-time awardee. Lee, professor, was award his 26th award. Mamo, department head and professor, received her second award. Kim Todd, associate professor and Extension horticulture specialist, received her 12th award.
More than 250 University of Nebraska-Lincoln employees were recently honored for providing support to students.
