President Greg Von Wald recently announced the winners of the first-ever service awards to MTI staff members.
The Above and Beyond award was presented to Marla Smith. This award is for a staff member, nominated by peers, who, through personal efforts and actions, has made a significant and extraordinary contribution to the advancement of MTI and the achievement of its strategic goals.
The Excellence in Instruction award was presented to Darin Maltsberger. This award is for a faculty member to recognize outstanding instructional technique, program growth through recruiting efforts, extraordinary student relationships, strong ties to industry, volunteerism and a consistent role model.
Each received an engraved trophy and a cash award.
Nominations for the 2011 awards will be accepted during the spring semester. Voting will take place before school dismisses in May.
