Employee awards for 2013 were presented at the annual employees’ holiday banquet on Thursday, December 19. The winners are:
Emmy Rosinbum, nursing, who won the Margaret W. Henzi Award for outstanding office/clerical employees, and was cited as “a quiet, unassuming glory who does eighty things with amazing skill, calm, and precision…she evinces a deep passionate faith by being herself, a wonderful exemplar of Christlike compassion.”
Walter Torres, physical plant, won the Ted Deiss/ Joyce and Virgil Dodson Outstanding Physical Plant Employee Award. He was praised as “the guy who loves to do just about anything, who is always smiling, who you can count on, and who will go the extra mile to get things done right.”
The winner of the Hooyboer Outstanding Professional Staff Award is Jason Brough, athletics. The Hooyboer Award honors the sort of dedication and commitment that drives and infuses the University’s best and most creative and visionary staffers. Jason was cited in part for “the same calm, and cheerful attention to detail, energy, and relentless curiosity he evinced as a freshman” in the performance of his duties as a director within the athletics department.
Winning the Father Charles Miltner, C.S.C., Award was Brenda Greiner, who was lauded as “an employee of absolute integrity, creativity, responsibility, and meticulous care for every student in her charge,” to thunderous applause, we might add. Beginning with the late Fr. John Hooyboer, C.S.C., the first recipient, the award has been presented to diligent and creative men and women who have gone to sometimes extraordinary lengths to further the mission of the University. It is the highest employee honor bestowed by the University.
