Seven Baylor University staff members were named Outstanding Staff at the annual Service Awards ceremony Feb. 13 in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.

Honorees were selected by a committee of university staff following nominations from Baylor faculty and staff. Those selected received a certificate signed by Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr., an award of $1,500 and recognition in the Baylor Homecoming parade.

Outstanding staff for 2001 are Cindy Dougherty, director of academic and foundation development; Dr. James Berryhill, coordinator of certification and admissions in the School of Education; Jane Moreno, assistant director of cashier services; Rebecca Robbins, assistant to the dean at the Louise Herrington School of Nursing; Beverly Kurfees, administrative associate in the dean's office at the Louise Herrington School of Nursing; Jami Symank, faculty secretary and business manager at the Baylor Law School; and Mary Reinhardt, assistant for degree plans in the School of Education.

Also recognized today for their service to Baylor were more than 280 university faculty and staff, who received pins indicating 5-year multiples of service, ranging from 5 years to 45 years.

Ten faculty and staff members received recognition for 35 years of service, while four were recognized for 40 years of service. Receiving pins for 45 years of service were Dr. Robert Packard, professor of physics, and Dr. John Belew, provost emeritus.
