Recently, the Manassas Campus hosted its annual Faculty/Staff Recognition Awards where members of the Campus were recognized for their efforts. This year’s theme was the “Moscars” (Manassas Oscars). The event was well attended and included presentations by Senator Charles J. Colgan, who delivered the Superior Campus Support Award created in his namesake. Mayor Hal Parrish, a longtime supporter and champion of the Manassas Campus, was represented by his Political Director Geoff Smith.
The Moscars also included special recognition for Claudia Serrato, one of the dedicated housekeeping staff, and the facilities team for their heroic efforts in keeping the Campus safe and ready for class during this year’s snow storms.
The award winners included: Dr. Michael Carrington (Dr. Wilfred Howsmon Campus Community Builder Award), Rosemary Gallick (Delegate Harry Parrish Innovation and Initiative Award), Dr. Molly Lynch (Dr. Robert G. Templin, Jr. Leadership Excellence Award), Nicole Mancini (Edward Anderson Teaching Excellence Award (full-time faculty)), Robert Raines (Edward Anderson Teaching Excellence Award (adjunct faculty)), Brittany Riggs (Senator Charles Colgan Superior Campus Support Award (full-time staff)) and Jessica Antelo (Senator Charles Colgan Superior Campus Support Award (part-time staff)).
Special thanks to the 2014-2016 Awards and Recognition Committee members: Dr. Sarah Gunnarson (Co-Chair), Jenni Barlet (Co-Chair), Pritha Roy, Dr. Vashti Bryan, Ramunda Young, ThuyTien Ngo-Nguyen and Heidi Adamson.
The celebration included a photo booth for faculty and staff to don fun accessories and take pictures on the “red carpet.” Congratulations to the dynamic Manassas faculty and staff, and all of the nominees and winners. See a full list of the 2014-2015 nominees in the Flyers section of this edition.
