Joe Carroll Award
A 20-year member of our housekeeping staff, Joe Carroll died on July 17, 2011, at age 66. In his memory, the Joe Carroll Memorial Award was created later that year by faculty and staff. This award recognizes non-exempt staff members who exemplify Joe’s commitment to the campus.
The winner of the award for 2013 was Earl P. Dean, Equipment Room Supervisor for Athletics. Congratulations, Earl!
