The Unsung Hero Award

The Unsung Hero Awards are presented to Staff Council representatives who contribute to the overall success of the organization by working behind the scenes to advance Staff Council’s mission. Unsung Heroes volunteer at Staff Council functions and events, attend both the general body meetings as well as their regular standing committee meetings, and assist in whatever capacity is necessary, all while flying under the radar screen.
