IMS employee honored

 Florida State University presented Maribel Amwake, academic mapping coordinator for the Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences program, with an Exemplary Service Award at the recent employee recognition ceremony.

The awards are based on achievements and resulting impacts to a department, college, division, or the university as a whole. Amwake was recognized in the category of student services.

From the nomination letter written about Amwake:

“Starting a completely new degree program in a college with no other undergraduate degree, we needed everything—especially staff who were intimately familiar with university policies and what students needed. Maribel’s knowledge and eagerness to support this has been key to the development of program policies that align with the university.

“Everything she does targets student needs. Within only a month on-board, her supervisor said that she has proven to be a valuable asset, a team player, a knowledgeable advisor and coordinator, and a pleasure to work with. Her skills and application of those skills are truly exemplary. She is a pleasure to work with and we would be lost without her.”

Added Senior Associate Dean for Interdisciplinary Medicine Sciences Myra Hurt: “She has been invaluable in building our new program due to her knowledge but also her can-do spirit.”
