In two separate announcements, three staffers at the Cullen College of Engineering have been recognized and awarded for their exemplary work as employees by the University of Houston.

Miranda Vernon-Harrison, the Director of Graduate Student Affairs, is one of eight people and organizations receiving one of the inaugural Staff Council Awards. Robert Dial and Ralph Brown of the Electrical Engineering Department received President's Excellence Awards in the area of Technical, Service & Craft.

The Staff Council Awards recognize employee excellence at the University of Houston. According to the nominating criteria, recipients must demonstrate a positive attitude that encompasses qualities in alignment with Staff Council values: service, training, advocacy, networking, diversity and sustainability (STANDS).

Vernon-Harrison will receive an engraved award and a special acknowledgment at a Staff Council General Meeting. In addition, recipients will be featured in the Staff Connect newsletter and spotlighted on Staff Council social media.

The President's Excellence Awards recognizes a select group of employees from a qualifying group with service longevity of 10 years or more, every five years. Dial and Brown were honored with 13 other award recipients at a luncheon in September.

The College extends its congratulations to Miranda, Robert and Ralph!
