Frostburg State University honored three outstanding employees, Harriet Douglas, Gale Yutzy and Patrick McLane at its recent Fall Convocation. The annual Staff Awards for Excellence recognize outstanding service to the institution, and the recipients are nominated and chosen by their colleagues.
Douglas was honored in the category of exempt (salaried) employee. She is the director of Student Support Services and has been at FSU for 10 years. “Her commitment to helping students live up to their potential, personally and academically, is inspiring to all of us who know and work with her,” according to a letter of support to her nomination.
Yutzy was recognized in the category of nonexempt (hourly) employee. A 20-year FSU employee, she is an administrative assistant in the Department of Geography. “She is easy to work with because of her collegiality, flexibility, creativity, and wonderful sense of humor. She is dependable, responsible, and committed,” her nomination read.
McLane was acknowledged in the nonexempt facilities and maintenance category. He is a housekeeper for Westminster Hall and has worked at FSU for 14 years. Among his letters of nomination was this quote: “He has provided a great service to the students of FSU.
Beyond his responsibilities as housekeeper, he has worked to make this institution a better place.”
Recipients were given a plaque, a certificate commemorating their dedication and a monetary award.
Staff Awards for Excellence are funded by the FSU Foundation Annual Fund Campaign.
