Paula Varnes Fussell, Interim Vice President for Human Resource Services

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 21st year, is to recognize Academic Personnel (faculty); 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, 2008, to July 31, 2009.

Please take this opportunity to recognize those exceptional employees among us who provide outstanding service for the university. This year’s nomination period will run from September 15 through October 30.

Division-level winners each receive $200 along with a certificate of appreciation and university memento. Each division winner is then 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 Willis 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.
