LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 9, 2016) — Sixty-One University of Kentucky staff members were honored during the 2016 Outstanding Staff Awards (OSA) recognition ceremony recently at the Woodford Reserve Room in Commonwealth Stadium. This was the seventh year for the event sponsored by the UK Staff Senate and the UK President's Office.

 

More than 100 people were in attendance to honor the award winners, including UK President Eli Capilouto, Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration Eric Monday, colleagues and other campus leaders.

 

“UK is defined by its people, and the Outstanding Staff Awards program illustrates the high-level commitment and exceptional talent our staff have to advance the mission of the University of Kentucky,” Capilouto said.

 

OSA winners were all referred by their respective work units as their most deserving employees of 2015-16.

 

“We were very happy this year to add the College of Medicine to the growing list of colleges and departments included in the ceremony,” said Jon Gent, the OSA program chair. “We are delighted that administrators see the value in engaging staff by recognizing their successes.”

 

The 61 OSA winners represented 20 colleges and administrative units, including the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, College of Arts and Sciences, Gatton College of Business and Economics, College of Communication and Information, College of Dentistry, College of Education, College of Engineering, College of Health Sciences, College of Law, College of Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, College of Public Health, Human Resources, Office of Philanthropy, Office of the Treasurer, Student Affairs, UK HealthCare, UK HealthCare IT, UK Libraries, and Undergraduate Studies.
