SMU gives out a lot of awards. Some require extravaganzas to work through them all. Some involve the serious business of giving away a lot of money. The awards given out by the Senate are modest, but they are the result of truly heart-felt appreciation. There were many nominations this year, the subjects of which all deserve to be honored—and we hope eventually the Senate will over time be able to acknowledge each of them. Those receiving awards this year have earned the deep respect of the faculty who work with them and depend on them. That is to say, the awards are a measure not just of jobs well done, but also of the personal contributions the individuals have made to the web of interconnections that make up SMU. In most cases, the winners were so unassuming about the work they did that they were genuinely surprised to find themselves nominated, much less winning.
