Nominations sought for Amy Blue award

STANFORD -- Nominations are being sought for the second annual Amy J. Blue Award, which honors exceptional contributions made by members of the Stanford staff.

In calling for nominations, President Donald Kennedy wrote members of the community asking them to put forward the names of staff members who are "dedicated to accomplishment," "committed to people" and "enthusiastic."

Nominations should identify exceptional staff members who may not be highly visible nor particularly senior in the administration. The several hundred nominations for the first Amy J. Blue Award included staff members representing every conceivable unit, level and background.

The winner was Carol Vonder Linden, now an assistant dean for research and at the time an assistant dean in the School of Earth Sciences.

She will join Robert Gregg, Sally Mahoney, Susan Schofield, Lowell Price and Margie Tellez on the Selection Committee for this year's award. Nominations received by April 10 will be considered for this year's award, along with the nominations received for the 1991 award.

The annual award value is $1,000. The recipient will identify professional development activities, and the award funds will be available to support those career activities.

Blue was associate vice president for administrative services when she died in May 1988. The endowment supporting the award was established by a group of women who knew and respected her, and with contributions from colleagues, friends and family.

Nominations should be mailed to the Amy J. Blue Award Selection Committee, Memorial Church, mail code 2090.
