Call for staff nominations for the Celebration of Excellence Awards

Call for staff nominations for the Celebration of Excellence Awards

Every April, Georgia College hosts the Celebration of Excellence Awards Ceremony to recognize staff who have shown excellence in their field and dedicated service to the University community. Staff Council is now asking for nominations. To nominate a staff member or team on campus, please fill out our online form. Below is the list of awards available along with a description of the award.

- Individual Service Excellence: This award recognizes individual staff members who have gone above and beyond in their service to students, colleagues, and other Georgia College community members during the last academic year.

- Outstanding Leadership Award:  This award recognizes individuals in leadership roles/capacities who have gone above and beyond in their service to students, colleagues, and other Georgia College community members during the last academic year.

- 'The Bright Idea Award' for Outstanding Process Improvement: This award recognizes teams, departments, or divisions that designed and implemented process improvements or initiatives over the last year that have significantly increased effectiveness and efficiency. Projects will be considered on the basis of improved service times, improved quality of service, and the significance of the positive impact on their customers (students, colleagues, community)

- Team Service Excellence: This award recognizes teams that have gone above and beyond in their service to students, colleagues, and other Georgia College community members during the last academic year.

- Bobcat Spirit: This award recognizes an individual who exemplifies the spirit of Georgia College and everything it signifies. Successful candidates can either bleed Blue and Green for the university's many sports teams or exude school spirit in the way they exemplify the Liberal Arts Mission - engaging in intellectual, professional, or civic pursuits; taking initiative; answering the call to leadership; and building a better university community for the future.

- Bobcat Partner Award: Not all members of Team Georgia College are employed by the university. This award recognizes a business or organization that, although not a part of Georgia College, helps the campus community achieve its mission and goals as if it were a member of the team. Successful nominations could be for a vendor that does business with Georgia College or an organization that partners with Georgia College departments, on-campus organizations, or initiatives.

- The Eve Puckett Community Service Award: This award recognizes an individual that donates his or her time to on-campus or community volunteer opportunities above and beyond their responsibilities at Georgia College.

Nominations must be submitted to Staff Council no later than March 29, 2022. Award winners will be announced at the Celebration of Excellence Ceremony on Friday, April 15, 2022. If you have any questions about the nomination process, please email staff_council@gcsu.edu.
