Annual Awards Ceremony Honors Staff

January 23, 2012

Consistent hard work and putting in the extra effort is appreciated in all walks of life, and Carnegie Mellon University's College of Engineering (CIT) realizes that these qualities deserve to be recognized. In order to honor those CIT staff members who show extreme dedication to their work, the College of Engineering holds the annual CIT staff awards lunch and ceremony.

 This year's ceremony and lunch, which the entire CIT staff was invited to attend, was held this afternoon in the Singleton Room in Roberts Hall. To determine who would be recognized, staff members were encouraged beforehand to nominate their colleagues for the CIT Staff Recognition Award, Burritt Education Award and Rookie Award. Some staff members were recognized for their length of service, including the five members of the INI staff who are listed below.

  • Linda Whipkey, 10 years of service
  • Nancy Doyle, five years of service
  • Yuki Izena-Vandapel, five years of service
  • Robert Neill, five years of service
  • Ann Ritchie, five years of service
In order to include CIT staff at CMU's Silicon Valley campus, a video conference of the ceremony was set up and a complimentary breakfast was provided.
