Today, we honor with the Dolphin Award for Outstanding Service and Contribution to the College by a Member of the Non-Teaching Instructional Staff in the HEO Title:
Manuel Gonzalez, Coordinator of Special Events
You are a man who wears so many hats it would take all afternoon to list them. As you develop, create, and manage the myriad events on campus, from small gatherings to large undertakings like Commencement and the President’s Convocation, your attention to detail is impeccable, and you always display grace under pressure with your unflappable demeanor and can-do attitude. Apart from your exceptional ability to pull together disparate elements to create and conduct events that make the College proud, you possess an amazing sense of humanity that not only makes attendees feel comfortable and at home, but also leaves your colleagues feeling fortunate that they have the opportunity to work with you and know you. Now, after many years of ordering Dolphin Awards for so many deserving members of the College community it is so fitting that you finally had the opportunity to order one for yourself.
Your tireless dedication, commitment, and contribution to our campus community are an inspiration to us all.
