The Staff Senate wishes to congratulate the University of Arkansas Employees of the Year for 2016-17.
Employees of the year represent staff employees who have gone above and beyond their normal job duties for the previous year, and were selected from amongst the winners of the Employees of the Quarter from fiscal year 2017. These individuals are nominated by their peers and supervisors for outstanding work from five different categories and were selected by a committee composed of the Employees of the Year from fiscal year 2016.

Each winner will receive a certificate and a monetary award at this awards ceremony. In addition, 2016-17 Employees of the Year will serve as the selection committee for the 2017-18 Employees of the Quarter and Year. Many thanks to the 2015-16 Employees of the Year who served on this year's selection committee — Carolyn Chitwood, Anne Raines, Natalia Karnes, Leigh Marshall, and Jackson Owusu.
