Event Gives Staff a Chance to Celebrate

April 19, 2019

Staff of St. John Fisher College gathered on Thursday, April 11 to celebrate their colleagues during the annual Staff Recognition Awards and Celebration.

Carol Ziegler, Amanda Burns, Liz LaChance, and Dave Roberts-all winners of the 2019 Soaring Cardinal Award-pose with The Cardinal mascot.

This year, the Staff Recognition Committee revamped the awards program in an effort to broaden the impact of their work.

The Wings Up Award recognizes Fisher staff members who exemplify the Cardinal spirit in all they do within their role at the College. Staff members can be nominated for a Wings Up Award throughout the year, and all who are nominated will be recognized during each Staff Recognition event.

The Soaring Cardinal Award recognizes staff members who go above and beyond the expectations of their daily role; they soar to aspirational heights and serve as a shining example of the Cardinal spirit. The winners of the 2019 Soaring Cardinal Award were Amanda Burns, Liz LaChance, Dave Roberts, Cathy Sweet, and Carol Ziegler.

The 2018-2019 Staff Recognition Committee includes Kristin Anderson, Jacquelyn Bokor, Tammy Chmiel, Karen Costantini, Monica Gebhardt, Matt Lake, Alexander Liebowitz, Sarah Mancini-Goebert, Kathleen Maurer, Renee Morano, Jen Pluretti, Jill Rathbun, Elizabeth Rizzolo, and Brittany Zeager, led by co-chairs Kate Ross and Sara Vinch.
