Ashtabula Campus administrator receives KSU President's Excellence Award
Kent State University at Ashtabula business services administrator Dave Schultz thought he was taking part in a video conference dealing with Main Hall renovation on January 26. Instead, he was surprised by KSU president Lester Lefton, who announced that Schultz had won the 2009 President's Excellence Award.
The President's Excellence Award recognizes Kent State University staff who have demonstrated exceptional performance in advancing one or more of the goals of the university's excellence agenda from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009. This was the first year for the award.
Ashtabula Campus dean Susan Stocker considers Schultz her "right hand man." "He makes us all better people and he makes this campus a better place to work," Stocker said. "As lead employee on the construction project, Dave spent countless hours and made many personal sacrifices to see the completion of the Robert S. Morrison Health and Science Building on time and without compromise," she said.
Schultz was one of only ten winners from 200 nominated and one of two winners from the regional campuses of Kent State University.
