Each winner receives a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout travel mug and a UW-Stout blanket presented by Chancellor Katherine Frank.
Kuester said the award helps build morale. “I was surprised and very excited,” he noted of winning the award.
Students, faculty and staff may nominate university staff members who demonstrate a commitment to excellence and the university community at the University Staff Employee Appreciation Award nomination form.
The award, in its 16th year, was established by the Chancellor’s Office and is co-sponsored by the University Staff Senate.
