“We have many wonderful employees at Sam Houston State University, and we hope to get as many good nominations as possible,” said Meredith Conrey, chair of the Staff Excellence Award Committee.

Once winners are chosen, they will be recognized during the Fall 2022 General Faculty/Staff Meeting and will receive a financial stipend of $2,000. To nominate a member of the staff, fill out the online form at
