This award is presented monthly to a UND staff member who went out of his or her way to make UND a better place.
UND faculty, staff, students and public are encouraged to nominate and recognize those who did something special or extraordinary to assist a colleague, supervisor, student or family.
The winner receives a certificate, $50, and is recognized before their co-workers and supervisor for their efforts. The recipients are eligible to be considered for an annual award of $250 which is presented at the Staff Recognition Luncheon in May.
The 2016-2017 annual winner was Allison Peyton, Business Service Center Manager. This award was presented during the Staff Recognition Luncheon held on May 9th, 2017.

Allison's nomination was a heart-felt explanation of how much she values family and those around her. It showed how Allison supports and genuinely cares for people and their situations, especially when others are confronted with tragedy and adversity. For those that are touched by Allison as an "excellent boss", she can truly become their rock.
Congratulations Allison Peyton, Staff Senate thinks "U-Shine"!
