SOMERS —The University of Wisconsin-Parkside celebrated the beginning of another academic year with the tradition of Fall Convocation.

During her convocation message, Chancellor Debbie Ford told close to 400 faculty and staff that their work transforms and inspires lives. "Colleagues, we are recruiting graduates. Students who start here want to stay here because of what we do each day in the classroom, in the residence halls, in the advising and student support offices, and across our campus," Ford said. "We promise a 'Real. Amazing.' experience when they first visit our campus and we are delivering on our promise."

Ten faculty and staff were honored for "Real. Amazing." contributions to the university: 

  • Don Lintner, Academic Staff Distinguished Service Award;
  • Dave Light, Classified Staff Distinguished Service Award;
  • April Puryear, Classified Staff Distinguished Service Award;
  • Madhumita (Mita) Banerjee, Advising Excellence Award;
  • Jordania Leon-Jordan, University of Wisconsin-Parkside Diversity Award;
  • Peter Knight, Community Engaged Learning and Research Award;
  • Susan Lincke, Excellence in Research and Creative Activity Award;
  • Farida Khan, Faculty Distinguished Service Award;
  • Kristin Holmberg-Wright, and James Kinchen, Stella C. Gray Teaching Excellence Award, the university's top teaching award.
