At its annual summer gathering, the University of the Sciences community celebrated employee service on Thursday, June 4, 2015. In addition to honoring employees with five or more years of service, University interim president  Marvin Samson presented the President’s Special Achievement Award to Ellen Carlson, associate registrar.

“Ellen has been an integral part of USciences for 29 years,” said Samson. “She was nominated by her coworkers and has consistently achieved.”

The President’s Special Achievement Award is given to an employee for his or her outstanding work performance and achievement during the current academic year.

Former registrar Alan Sims, who retired in 2012 and under whom Carlson worked, made a surprise appearance saying, “Ellen is always clam in the midst of the storm.”

Two other awards recognize work with students. Kate Purzycki, assistant chair in the Department of Biological Sciences, was named the Faculty Adviser of the Year, while Laura Green, professional advisor in Academic Advising, was the Professional Adviser of the Year.
