Susan Morris Named McCormick STAR Award Winner

Susan Morris, research administrator in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was recently named the STAR Award winner at a McCormick staff recognition event.

Morris was nominated because "initiative and communication are two of her most outstanding traits. In fall Susan published an internal newsletter for faculty, and on a daily basis she serves as an authority on NIH applications. She has exceeded expectations in managing and overseeing the reporting of millions of dollars in stimulus funding."

The STAR award, which stands for Staff Team Appreciation and Recognition award, is given quarterly to a McCormick staff member who demonstrates leadership and goes above and beyond regular job duties. Staff and faculty can nominate potential award winners, and a selection committee recommends a finalist to the dean for selection.
