Gustafson Award

2020 Gustafson Award Nominations

Posted on Updated on

The SDC Steering Committee is seeking nominations for the Gustafson Award. If you know a SDC agency or person within a SDC that has been doing great work and deserves some recognition, please nominate them!

The Gustafson Award was established in 2012 to remember one of our dear colleagues, Randy Gustafson from the Tennessee SDC, who also served on the SDC Steering Committee. Randy was a wonderful person and a big part of the SDC family. The Gustafson Award was created in his memory to honor outstanding contributions to the SDC network.

The Gustafson Award nomination form is here: Gustafson Nominating Form

Anyone can submit a nomination. Nominations are due to Jennifer Shultz jjb131@psu.edu or Michael Moser michael.moser@uvm.edu by Friday, November 15, 2019.
