Staff Service Awards

OSU-Tulsa offers two annual service awards for employee excellence. Both awards recognize outstanding leadership skills, effective communication skills and/or involvement in the community.

The Max Minor Service Award is for staff members who have served at least one year at the OSU-Tulsa campus. Funded in memory of OSU-Tulsa employee Max Minor by friends and co-workers, the award is generally given to an Academic Affairs staff member who has demonstrated a commitment to OSU-Tulsa. Other considerations include outstanding leadership skills, effective communication skills and/or involvement in the community.

The Roberta Joan Cothran Hess Award is awarded for exemplary staff members who work at the OSU-Tulsa campus and was funded in honor of Roberta Joan Cothran Hess by Dr. James Hess. The award is generally given to a staff member from the Administration and Finance groups or from Marketing and Communications Services who have displayed an ability to excel in their work. Other considerations include outstanding leadership skills, effective communication skills and/or involvement in the community.

All OSU-Tulsa employees are eligible to nominate fellow employees who work on the OSU-Tulsa campus. Recipients will be chosen by the Executive Team. Each recipient will receive a $500 cash award and campus recognition.
