Two staff members in the College of Letters & Science have been named winners of the 2010 Classified Employee Recognition Awards (CERA).
These annual awards recognize employees for their outstanding service to the public and students or for other significant contributions to UW-Madison.
The L&S recipients are:
- Jeff Burkett – College of Letters & Science – Chemistry Department
- Karen Turino – College of Letters & Science – Lubar Institute for the Study of the Abrahamic Religions
Burkett has worked for the Chemistry Department for 22 years as the stockroom manager for the analytical and general chemistry teaching laboratories.
As one reviewer said, “Jeff is the type of person who will stop what he’s doing to help students, TAs and faculty with any concerns or questions they may have.”
Turino has been critical in administering and managing the Lubar Institute, an organization only four-years-old with a major outreach and public service commitment, but limited in staff.
One review said, “for some four years, responsibility for managing every facet of the Institute’s various operations has rested entirely on Karen” and she “is the clerical rock upon which the Institute has risen.”
Congratulations to our recipients!
