Nominations for the awards come from employees, faculty, students and even alumni and board members, she said. The nominations are then reviewed by a committee made up of winners from the previous two years and a representative of the Staff Senate.

Each of the four employees honored received a plaque and a check for $750. The awards are funded by the Missouri Southern Foundation.

“The Foundation is very generous and supportive of our program,” said Dutch Kelley.
