Honors for Donna Snyder

Dear Colleagues;
Each year, the College of Arts and Letters selects one person to be given their “Outside Award”, presented to the person outside of the College who has been their most valued partner during the year. It is among the most prestigious awards given by the college, and candidates are nominated and selected by the members of their staff. Yesterday at the annual Year-End celebration lunch, this award was presented to our very own Donna Snyder. Rob Becht gave a very heartfelt introduction that spoke of Donna’s remarkable service to the University and their gratitude for her partnership. It was a wonderful surprise for Donna, and it is very gratifying for those of us inside University Relations to see one of our colleagues recognized by a campus partner like this. Please join us in congratulating Donna on this most special award!
Brian Dean
