Employee Award Nominations Now Open

The Office of Human Resources is currently accepting nominations for the Community Service Award and the Mary Jane Kelly Award for Service Excellence, which will be presented during the Employee Recognition Ceremony on March 15, 2022. Agenda to follow.

Please submit all nominations electronically or by confidential mail to the attention of Dayonna Taylor in the Human Resources Office, Suite G-211, by Monday, Feb. 14.


This award was established by the late Glenn Saltzman, Ph.D., who retired in 1996 after 20 years of service as a charter chairperson in the Department of Behavioral Sciences  and director of the Division of Medical Sciences. He and his wife, Ruth, created the award in memory of their son, Jon. The award annually recognizes an employee who has made contributions to the betterment of the community and service to fellow citizens. Emphasis will be given to an employee’s service to their community during the past two years. Think about your co-workers’ participation in community activities and/or the employee’s contribution to the organization(s) and/or charity(s) served and consider making a nomination.


This award was established in honor of Mary Jane Kelly, one of the first employees of NEOMED. Kelly served as assistant to the vice provost for administration and public affairs. This award is presented to a staff member who demonstrates an exemplary work ethic and takes the appropriate initiative while maintaining a strong service-oriented attitude. Think about all the great things your co-workers do that represent the attributes described. We want everyone to know about our best-of-the-best, so please consider making a nomination!
