Information Technology Award

Yesterday was the campus luncheon for the IT Awards. It's an annual event to recognize outstanding IT service across the campus. They accept many nominations (individuals and teams) and give out many awards for the best 10-20 people. I won this back in 2000.

Yesterday, I won it again. :) I had no idea this was coming, so it was interesting. I don't even remember what was said as part of the award. So, yeah, that was pretty cool to get some recognition for what is typically a thankless job. I got a plaque and even a 8GB iPod nano out of the deal too (not sure what to do with that since I use music on my berry).

The other part of the award is to be on the committee for next year. This was a pain last time, but it's manageable. There's nothing to do until the fall, but we're in charge of finding sponsors, begging for prizes, planning the luncheon and all finances.

Congratulations Joe, always nice to be recognized. Enjoy the limelight. I guess the reward for all your hard work is more hard work (being on the selection committee).

Congrats!

As for the Nano, if you've got the packaging you could always regift it....

It occurred to me after I hit Post Comment that it might appear as if I were hinting for you to gift it to me. That wasn't my intent.
