HR seeks Heritage Award nominations

YSU is putting out the annual call for nominations for the 2013 Heritage Award.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Dec. 31.

The award was initiated in 1981 as a means of recognizing former faculty and professional/administrative staff who have made major contributions to the University during their years of service. The award is the most prestigious honor at YSU as nominees are reviewed by a 16-person Heritage Award Committee comprised of representatives from each college, the administration, alumni, and the YSU Retirees Association. Nominees are initially eligible to be selected for inclusion in the Heritage Register and are, in subsequent years, eligible for consideration to receive the Heritage Award.

Nominees must be former members of the faculty (full-time or part-time) or a former (full-time) professional/administrative staff that has been separated from the University for a minimum of one year at the time of the nomination, with no further expectancy of paid employment by the University.  Nominees may be living or deceased.

Award recipients are honored with plaques mounted on the wall of the concourse of Maag Library. Sixty-three awards have been given since the program was initiated in 1981. The nomination form and the names of all past Heritage Award recipients are available on the YSU Human Resources website under “Employee Recognition”.

Nomination forms must be received by Moore no later than Dec. 31.
