AWARDS COMMITTEE ANNUAL REPORT, AY 2007-2008

 

 

            The Awards Committee (hereafter “the Committee”) held one formal meeting of the full committee in the Fall Semester and no formal meetings of the full committee in the Spring Semester.  All business for the Spring Semester was handled via e-mail.  Subcommittees, as discussed below, met several times during the academic year. 

 

The 2007-2008 Awards Committee consisted of the following:

PSYC                          Matthews, D.  

ELEC                           Barsanti, R.     

CIVL                           Mays, Tim       

MACS                         Trautman, D.   

ENGL                          Niemczyk, M.

 

At the Fall meeting, Dr. Mays was elected to serve as Chair of the committee.  Dr. Mays volunteered to serve as the committee representative for Who’s Who Among Students at American Universities and Colleges Awards.  Dr. Mays spoke with Pamela Barton to discuss how the faculty awards committee could work with her to increase the number of applicants for military awards.  Dr. Mays discovered that Pamela Barton had done a lot of work on the military awards process and that a new military awards committee was established with one representative from the faculty awards committee.  Dr. Mays agreed to serve in this capacity for 2007-2008.  Dr. Trautman volunteered to serve as the committee representative for summer scholarships.

 

Who’s Who Among Students at American Universities and Colleges Awards

Dr. Mays reported that the official contact for this award at The Citadel was Mary Ann Dorton (dortonm@citadel.edu).  Dr. Mays met two times with a committee of approximately ten faculty and staff at The Citadel to elect awardees based on nominations submitted from others across campus.  The process was very simple; Dr. Mays submitted his top 45 to Mary Ann Dorton via e-mail and the average of all committee members was used to select the awardees.

 

Military Awards

Military Awards were handled differently this year.  Pamela Barton (bartonp@citadel.edu) asked for one representative and Dr. Mays agreed to serve in this capacity. 

 

Summer Scholarships

Dr. Trautman reported that the official contact for this award at The Citadel is Spike Metts (spike.metts@citadel.edu).  Each committee member ranked the proposals submitted for summer scholarships to be funded by The Citadel Foundation.  The work was done in February and early March.

 

Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award

The Committee’s final job was selecting recipients for the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award.  The committee received copies of all nominations and voted, via e-mail, for one graduating senior recipient and one non-student recipient of the award.  Dr. Mays informed the Provost’s office of the Committee’s recommendations.
