Dolphin Award for Outstanding Service and Contribution to the College by a Member of the Part-Time, Non-Teaching Staff:
Debra Lane, College Assistant to the Faculty Senate and College Council, and the Department of History
You joined the College community 12 years ago. In your capacity as College Assistant to the Faculty Senate and College Council, you were responsible for a wide variety of important tasks related to College governance. You oversaw the creation and distribution of agendas and minutes, administered nominations and elections, and attended Executive Committee meetings regarding curriculum proposals and revised them for presentation. You did all of this while you also worked as an assistant in the History Office. You have even done outstanding work to ensure that the Committee on Organization was able to function efficiently when there were vacancies on that body. Sadly, for us, you retired last month. You have accomplished much at the College, and we will all miss your extraordinary organizational skills, but also your constant smile, sense of humor, and respect for every person.
Your professionalism and commitment inspire us all.
