Darrell Stevens, Office of Advancement, is the recipient of the President’s Employee of the Year Award. He received the recognition and appreciation of exceptional job performance, which includes a $1,000 award, during a Tuesday ceremony presented by System Staff Council at 1800 Grant St.
In 2008, after Matthew Hallowell received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from Oregon State University, he received multiple hiring offers. He ultimately chose a position with the University of Colorado Boulder‘s Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) “because of the collegiality and reputation of the program, the quality of the students and the work-life balance that can be attained in Boulder.” And then there was the matter of the mountains. He’s a hiker and mountain biker. (When he gets close to an ocean, he’s also a surfer.)
