Each year, Thomas More University gives an award for outstanding service by a full-time or part-time staff member. Any non-faculty employee of Thomas More is eligible, including directors.
To win, the employee must be nominated by a student, faculty member, or staff member of Thomas More. A selection committee will select the recipient from among those nominated. No one may win two years in a row.
The criteria evaluated by the Committee include:
Overall service to the Thomas More Community
It is not necessary that the nominee serves all components of the community (students, faculty, and staff) but should have established a record of service to at least one component.
The nominee who exemplifies the characteristics of Mary Schwab, in whose honor the award is named, is given precedence over other nominees. Mary Schwab was noted for being cheerful, helpful, patient, and kind.
Length of employment
The individual who has been serving the community for a longer period of time takes precedence over the more recent employee.
Number of nominations
The number of nominations received by an employee is not a major factor in determining the recipient of the award. The strength of the nomination is a major factor.
Nominations must include your reasons for nominating the employee. We will not consider nominations without this section completed. The recipient of the award will receive a gift, an office plaque, and his/her name inscribed on the Mary Schwab Employee Service Award plaque at the top of the main staircase.
