“One of the main things that motivates me to come to work every day is the incredible people I get to work alongside, day in and day out,” said Cathy Doederlein, president of the Supportive Professional Staff Council. “The tireless efforts of our colleagues are what helps this institution continue to provide a quality education to our students.”

Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus Dennis Kevill was recognized for 40 years of service.
