Staff Council invites all staff, faculty, and students to nominate an individual for the Distinguished Staff Award.

This annual award is presented to a Carthage staff member who consistently excels in their position, makes outstanding contributions in the area of service and dedication to the Carthage community, promotes teamwork and collaboration across campus, demonstrates humility and integrity, and prioritizes the best interests of our students.

The nominee provides prompt, efficient, and reliable service. The nominee is both dependable and trustworthy, and instills in his or her co-workers a sense of responsibility and dedication to the College.
