Facilities Kudos Award Honorees

On June 14, 2018, University Facilities honored more than 100 employees for leadership, academic, and service milestones and achievements.

Montclair State University Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Willard P. Gingerich delivered a keynote speech highlighting the critical role University Facilities staff play in helping Montclair State University achieve its mission.

Vice President for University Facilities Shawn Connolly announced Motor Vehicle Operator Yvelices Nunez as the 2018 recipient of the John W. Dennis Leadership Award (left). A 13-year employee of the University, Ms. Nunez received an overwhelming percentage of the nominations in recognition of her commitment to the University, her excellence, and the positive, upbeat manner she employs in her daily job performance. The highest honor the division may bestow upon an employee, this award is named in honor of John Dennis, a former Locksmith and IFPTE Local 195 President who passed away in 2012, having rendered 40 years of service to Montclair State. This year’s award was presented in absentia to Ms. Nunez’ children, Chrisbell, Christhalie, and Brian.

Two new categories were recognized at this year’s program. The Star Service Award honors staff as individuals or teams who demonstrate excellence in collaboration, commitment, innovation, leadership, and learning. The Retiree Award recognizes individuals who retired from service during the previous academic year. Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees!
