Three members of the Gustavus Adolphus College community were honored at the Nov. 1 daily chapel service as recipients of the college’s annual outstanding employee awards.

Harold Tish, electrician in the Gustavus physical plant department, was announced as the 2007 recipient of the Augusta Carlson Schultz Award, which is presented annually to a support staff employee who exemplifies outstanding dedication and spirit of service. Tish has worked for the physical plant since 1990.

Cynthia Favre, director of career management and associate director of the career center, received the 2007 Eric Norelius Award, given annually to an outstanding administrative employee who has demonstrated exceptional service and dedication to the college. Favre, a Gustavus employee since 1989, defines her position as connecting the gifts and talents of liberal arts graduates to the world’s needs. She also manages campus recruiting and hosts campus and career fairs including Employer Information Day.

Jeanne Herman, professor of health and exercise science, earned the 2007 Faculty Service Award, given annually to a faculty member whose service has improved the college. Since joining the faculty in 1979, Herman has been active on several faculty committees including the Faculty Senate, the Personnel Committee, and the Academic Policies and Program Committee. In addition, Herman has served as Chair of the Health and Exercise Science Department for 12 years which has resulted in major curricular changes and highly regarded and respected programs and majors.

A reception to honor the three recipients will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 8 in Alumni Hall, located in the O.J. Johnson Student Union.
