Classified Awards

Each quarter (fall, winter, spring, summer) an outstanding classified employee is selected to receive an award. At the end of the year, the four quarterly award winners become finalists for Classified Employee of the Year. The quarterly awards are presented at the quarterly All-Staff meeting, and the Employee of the Year award is presented at the Spring Reception.
