Elizabeth Stoyle Wins 2016 Chancellor’s Staff Award

This year’s award categories were changed so they align more closely with the University’s Strategic Plan. In previous years, as many as five individuals were selected for each of two categories: service to the University and service to the community. 

Each awardee will receive a $2,500 cash prize and be honored during a dinner to be held later in June. In addition, honorees’ names will be inscribed on plaques displayed in the William Pitt Union.
