Community Awards

Westminster Community Awards are based on a desire to build a closer Westminster community, and to recognize and reward the good work happening every day on our campus. Staff and faculty members are encouraged to nominate other Westminster faculty and staff for any of the awards. If you know someone whose activities match the criteria, reward them with a nomination!
