Fredonia State: Event a tribute to ‘excellence’

Over the years, many employees at Fredonia State University have received honors for helping the institution gain its national and local acclaim.

This year marked the 14th annual President’s Awards for Excellence and Service Luncheon in which hundreds attended. Each year, these employees are recognized for their work.

Some are truly unsung heroes at the university. Highly recognized community members, we often forget the importance of what these employees do on a daily basis.

Those honored this year include: Joseph Baxter, a network security administrator within the department of Information & Technology Services; Darlene Burchett, a janitor within the department of Facilities Services; Patricia Feraldi, director of Alumni Affairs; and Dr. Keary Howard, a professor within the department of Mathematical Sciences.

Congratulations to these honorees and the others applauded for significant milestones in their careers.

It was a group – and event – worth celebrating.
