At an awards program in the Memorial Union Ballroom Wednesday (Jan. 9, 2018), staff members were honored with the Staff Council Making a Difference Award.
The Above and Beyond Award was given to Allison Hein, research engineer and scientist, Materials Science and Engineering.
Her nominator says, “Allison’s competence and effectiveness is revealed by the inarguable impact that it has had on the productivity of the MSE department and its faculty.”
A letter of support states, “In our roles we work with researchers from across campus. When a large of complicated project is initiated, one of the things we regularly hear is ‘how can we involve Allison in this project?'”
