Pulaski Technical College

Employee Recognition

Pulaski Technical College faculty and staff represent the institution's richest resource. Pulaski Tech’s employee recognition program was established in an effort to recognize and reward faculty and staff for their contributions to the success of the overall mission of the college.

Each year, Pulaski Tech honors its faculty and staff with an Employee Recognition Luncheon during the week of commencement. During the event, awards are presented to faculty and staff in recognition of their years of service to the college in five-year increments, and faculty and staff are honored for their excellence and achievements during the year.

The college also presents the following awards to outstanding faculty and staff:

Star Award – This award recognizes exemplary performance by Pulaski Technical College faculty and staff. All regular full-time faculty and staff are eligible for nomination. The Employee Recognition Committee will select one faculty member and one staff member to receive the Star Award each month. Nominees who are not selected for an award are eligible for future consideration and/or re-nomination. Monthly Star Award recipients will be eligible for consideration for the Susan K. Reid Award for Teaching Excellence and the Quenton C. Burge Award for Service Excellence, which are presented at the Employee Recognition Luncheon in May.

Quenton C. Burge Award for Service Excellence – For more than 40 years, Quenton C. Burge has been a dedicated employee of the Physical Plant department of Pulaski Technical College. In 2004, the college’s annual Award for Service Excellence was named in his honor. Now in his eighties, Burge remains an integral part of the Pulaski Tech family. Each year, this award is presented to a staff member that provides quality service to the students, faculty, staff and community.

Susan K. Reid Award for Teaching Excellence – Susan Reid taught mathematics at Pulaski Tech for many years until her death in 2001. She truly defined the word excellence, and this award, which recognizes outstanding teaching, is a tribute to her many years of devoted service to Pulaski Tech students and the community.  Reid was the first recipient of the college’s outstanding faculty award in 1996. In 2002, the Award for Teaching Excellence was renamed in her honor.

Barbara Peters Adjunct Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence – Barbara Peters taught English at Pulaski Tech for many years until her death in 2007. Her legacy at the college is one of popularity, outstanding teaching ability and devotion to student success. In 2008, the Adjunct Award for Teaching Excellence was renamed in her honor.
