An integral part of the UC Santa Barbara family, staff members are in the spotlight during the campus's annual Staff Celebration Week, May 20-23. For five days, a slate of staff-focused special events and activities honors their commitment, dedication and hard work. The occasion provides an opportunity for staff organizations, departments, central offices and other members of the campus community to formally recognize the achievements and efforts of University staff.
That includes presentation by Chancellor Henry T. Yang of the Citation of Excellence Awards for staff, sponsored by Staff Assembly, during the Staff Celebration Week Luncheon. The honorees for 2019 were Chelsea Boone, Office of Admissions; Brittany Boxley, Department of Physics; Angelica Caudillo, Educational Opportunity Program; Richelle De Los Santos, Department of Chemistry; Monica Dussert, Environmental Health and Safety; Dana Huffman, Student Affairs Information Systems; Alexa Johnson, Natural Reserve System; Pamela Scott, Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises; and Rickie Smith, Graduate Division.
The other events held during the week included the annual ice cream social, sponsored by Staff Assembly; the Staff Assembly Cookie Contest; and the Staff Social, Arts & Crafts Bazaar and Staff Assembly Drawing.
