Do you know a professional or classified staff member who diligently works to show RESPECT TO THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY including our students, personnel and facilities; exhibits a POSITIVE ATTITUDE in what they say and how they act; ensures PRIDE IN THEIR WORK by always doing their best; shows EXEMPLARY DEPENDABILITY in following through on requests and tasks; and provides EXCELLENCE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE, both in person and online?

If so, why not honor these remarkable individuals by nominating them for a 2016 Superior Service Award?

The Superior Service Award (SSA) will be presented to one professional and one classified staff member at the Staff Appreciation and Years of Service Brunch next month. All nominees will be acknowledged at the event, with the 2016 Superior Service Award recipients receiving an engraved plaque and a $750 cash award made possible by the Missouri Southern Foundation for their outstanding service to Missouri Southern State University, its student body and overall campus community.

You may submit your SSA nominee by completing the online 2016 MSSU Superior Service Award Nomination Form. Printed forms are also available in the Human Resources office. There is no limit to the number of nominations a university employee may submit; however, only nominees who meet the award requirements will be considered. Nominations will be accepted until Wednesday, Nov. 30.
