Jim Davis Staff Council Award for Meritorious Service

About the Award

The Jim Davis Staff Council Award for Meritorious Service was established in 1999 and recognizes the significant contributions of an individual to the Staff Council. The award is named in memory of the late Jim Davis who served as a Staff Councilor for more than five years on numerous committees and was the Council’s Speaker for four years. Jim was the first recipient of this award.

The Jim Davis Award is presented each year, during the month of July, to one individual who is a current or former Staff Councilor and/or who serves as a representative on standing committees, University-wide committees or ad hoc committees.

Recipients are presented with a plaque during the July Staff Council Business meeting.

Receipt of nomination forms will be confirmed by email.
