Caring Bengal Award Recipient: Maria Garrity

I am pleased to announce that Maria Garrity, senior systems programmer in RITE Services, has received the President's Caring Bengal Award. Ms. Garrity was nominated for the award by Robert Baumet, director of business services, Finance and Management; Rock Doyle, assistant vice president of the Weigel Wellness Center; Thomas Koller, senior associate director of intercollegiate athletics; Charlene Vetter, associate director of the Weigel Wellness Center; and Barbara Boquard, assistant to the CIO, Information Technology Exchange Center. I am so pleased to recognize Ms. Garrity and encourage the entire campus community to join me in thanking her for her exceptional effort to make Buffalo State a great place to live, learn, and work. Her award profile can be viewed on the Professional Development website.

In December 2017, I announced the creation and implementation of the President's Caring Bengal Award. This award recognizes supportive colleagues in our Buffalo State community who not only transform the lives of our students but also help create a caring and collegial environment for our faculty, staff, and administrators.

Members of the campus community are invited to submit nominations for the third month of the President's Caring Bengal Award by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 1. For more information about the award criteria and recipient selection process, or to submit a nomination, please visit the Professional Development website.
