MEMORANDUM

TO:           All University Employees

FROM:       Carolyn Atkins, Director of Stewardship

SUBJECT:   Thirty-third Annual C. Knox Massey Distinguished Service Awards

DATE:        January 11, 2012

 

On behalf of Chancellor Holden Thorp and the members of the Awards Committee, I encourage you to nominate a colleague for this year's C Knox Massey Distinguished Service Award. The criterion is "unusual, meritorious or superior contribution made by an employee, past or present, to The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill." Under the terms of the gift, the Massey Distinguished Service Award may be conferred by the Chancellor upon any living full-time or part-time employee, whether faculty or staff and whether subject to the State Personnel Act, except members of the Awards Committee while they are members. Chancellor Thorp will present each of the six recipients with an award of $6,000 during the annual spring luncheon.

The Awards Committee has retained nominations made in 2010 and 2011 and will again consider them, together with additional nominations received for 2012.  Persons first nominated before 2010 will be considered again only if new nominations are submitted. Nominations must be submitted in writing or may be submitted by completing an online nomination form at www.unc.edu/masseyawards/nominate. Each nomination or supplemental information should contain:

 

a.   The name of the proposed recipient.

b.   Whether a present or past University employee (if past, an indication of the dates when the nominee was employed).

c.   A brief description of the service rendered and why it is thought to be a contribution sufficiently "unusual, meritorious or superior" to deserve an award. (It is expected that the service to be recognized would not be of a sort that is already the subject of existing awards, such as, for example, the various teaching awards or the Thomas Jefferson Award.)

d.    Nominations made by letter require the signature of the nominator or seconder. Nominations made online require a valid Onyen ID and password. Because of the signature and password requirements, nominations and seconds will not be accepted by FAX or e-mail.

 

Letters of nomination should be addressed to Carolyn Atkins, Chair, C Knox Massey Distinguished Service Awards Committee, CB # 6100, 208 West Franklin Street. Online nomination forms and letters of nomination must be received before the close of business, 5 p.m., Wednesday, February 8, 2012.

 

Information about the Massey Awards and the nomination process is available at www.unc.edu/masseyawards. Winners will be announced in March.
