University of the Sciences’ faculty and staff gathered for the annual employee recognition reception on Thursday, June 6, 2013 to honor employee service. Employees from five to 40 years of service were acknowledged. University President Dr. Helen Giles-Gee revealed the President’s Special Achievement Award given to the employee for his or her outstanding work performance and achievement during the current academic year. The 2013 award was presented to James Yarrish, project manager in the Provost Office, who recently completed a two-year term as president of the Staff Assembly, helping to establish the governing body. Among his many contributions, Yarrish served on the Middle States Steering Committee, the Inauguration Committee, and the Installation Subcommittee. Also handed out at the ceremony was the Professional Advisor of the Year award to Julie Carney-Jones, and Faculty Advisor of the Year to Richard Minoff (Mayes College).
