The Computer Science department would like to congratulate Hussam Nasir for earning the College of Engineering Staff Excellence Award. This recognition is awarded annually to staff members based on the employee's dedication to his job, positive attitude, and exceptional job performance. The award, which was presented at the annual staff appreciation picnic, is accompanied by a plaque and a $1,000 cash gift.
This is Nasir's second time being nominated for the award, but he says he did not expect to win because there are "many staff members with exceptional skills and dedication to their jobs who have been at UK long before I even came here."
At the award ceremony, several glowing descriptions of Nasir's work were read aloud. Nasir admits, "Most of the comments [the presenter] read out were what I considered to be routine and part of my job. I did not realize that they kept a note of all I had done.... It made me really happy and revitalized my passion for this job."
Jennifer Doerge, a Student Affairs Officer with the Computer Science department, was also nominated for this award.
The Computer Science department is proud to boast both Mr. Nasir and Mrs. Doerge as members of its staff!
