One of the highlights of the annual MIIS faculty and staff holiday party is the announcement of recipients of the Institute’s Above and Beyond Awards. As described in the Employee Handbook,

The Above and Beyond Award was established in 2006 to recognize employees of the Institute who go above and beyond the normal duties of their position.

This year’s awards went to Sam Bravo, Ann Flower, and Kathy SparacoCongratulations!

To Sam Bravo, Maintenance Assistant, In recognition of his countless hours of service to the Monterey Institute campus, at all hours.  Sam is a “can do” member of the MIIS community, who doesn’t know the meaning of “that’s not my job.”  He takes great pride in his work, and genuinely cares for the Institute’s faculty, staff, and students.

To Kathy Sparaco, Manager of International Services, In recognition of the expertise and innovative ideas she has brought to the Institute, especially in supporting international students, staff, and faculty.  She is an outstanding new staff member, energetic and passionate about community building, and about providing the highest level of service.

To Ann Flower, Coordinator of Public Services for the Library, in recognition of her consistent, excellent service to faculty, staff, and students.  She is well informed, helpful, pleasant, and willing to go the extra mile.  Whether blogging, doing research, or answering inquiries, her performance is always excellent, and greatly appreciated by all.
