Kyle J. Cavanaugh, Senior Vice President for Administration

I am pleased to announce a call for nominations for the University of Florida’s Superior Accomplishment Awards program. The purpose of the program, now in its 19th year, is to recognize Academic Personnel; Technical, Executive, Administrative, and Managerial Support (TEAMS) employees; and University Support Personnel System (USPS) employees who have contributed outstanding service in their fields during the academic year of August 1, 2007, through July 31, 2008.

Please don’t miss this chance to recognize those among us who make the extra effort to contribute. This year’s nomination period is now underway and runs through October 31.

Division-level winners each receive $200 along with a certificate of appreciation and university memento. Each division winner then is eligible to be selected for one of six university-level awards of $2,000 each or one of eight $1,000 awards sponsored by The Gabor Agency (four awards) and HRH of Gainesville Inc. (four awards). In addition, each of the six university-level winners and his or her guest will be invited to attend a University of Florida football game in the President’s Box next season.

For additional information about the Superior Accomplishment Awards program, nomination criteria, and nomination forms, please visit the awards section of HRS’s web site at or contact your divisional committee chairperson, listed below.
