“It is great to see such a nice cross-section of campus represented during this year’s recognition ceremony,” said ESU President Marcia G. Welsh, Ph.D. “Some of this year’s honorees teach in the broad range of disciplines across the curriculum, while others provide administrative support services or student services, make sure this campus is in pristine condition or serve the campus by keeping our technology running smoothly.
