Dear Members of the Faculty and Staff,
Please take time to recognize and thank a staff member or staff department or work team whose work has helped make your experience at Wheaton better because of outstanding service. Copied at the bottom of this email is information about the three types of awards. The nomination process is online. Click here for the nominations page and click on the "Service Awards" link to bring you to the form.

If your department's staff members do not have access to email, please print off copies of this email for them. Although we encourage those who can do so to use the online system, paper nominations forms are available under the "Staff Excellence Awards" link: http://wheatoncollege.edu/hr/forms-publications/ and are also available through Human Resources. A list of prior years' award recipients is also available through the link.
