Three members of the Gustavus Adolphus College community were honored as recipients of the college’s annual outstanding administrative and support staff employee awards.

Sandy Grochow, accounts payable coordinator in the Finance Office, was announced as the 2006 recipient of the Augusta Carlson Schultz Award, which is presented annually to a support staff employee who “exemplifies outstanding dedication and spirit of service.” She has worked with business officers at the College since 1964.

Tami Linton Aune, residential computing consultant with Gustavus Technology Services, received the 2006 Eric Norelius Award, given annually to an outstanding administrative employee. Aune, a 1982 Gustavus graduate, started in the information technology area in 1989. She is now responsible for maintaining the Computer Helpline, supervising the student employees who staff it, and assisting in the planning, development, and deployment of computer services for the student community.

Barbara Kaiser, associate professor of mathematics and computer science, earned the 2006 Faculty Service Award in recognition of her work with College and community planning and advisory groups. Since joining the faculty in 1984 she has been active in faculty governance and curriculum review, including the Faculty Senate, Curriculum Committee (chair in 1997-98), Personnel Committee, President’s Task Force on Diversity, and Strategic Planning Committee. She has also been involved with math advisory committees and activities in the St. Peter school system.

These awards, recognizing exceptional service and dedication to Gustavus, are presented annually during the college’s Founders Day Celebration.
