Freeman Award

The Freeman Award was created in 1998  to celebrate outstanding performance by an administrative professional in Student Affairs.  Like the Chambers-Reid Award, it is an acknowledgment of work performed with excellence and with exemplary spirit. The award honors the service of Teresa L. (“Pete”) Freeman, who for 22 years was the secretary and office manager in the Office of the Dean of Students and subsequently in the Office of Student Affairs (once that office was created). Her work ethic, the excellence, precision, and speed with which she performed her duties, and the consistent calm, maturity, and cheerfulness she applied to her interactions with students, faculty, staff, and parents are legendary. This award honors Pete’s legacy by recognizing those qualities as exhibited by members of the support staff today.

Please nominate a deserving member of the Student Affairs staff for the Freeman Award.
