Two UT Officials Receive Awards

Two University officials recently received recognition for their efforts in various areas.

UT’s President Ronald Vaughn recently received the H.L. Culbreath Profile in Leadership Award.

The Award was presented to him by Leadership Tampa Alumni at the annual meeting of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce.

According to the UT website, the Culbreath Profile in Leadership Award honors leadership involvement in the civic, cultural, economic, charitable, recreational or educational areas.

Corporate vice president of University Community Health and chairman of the H.L. Culbreath Jr. Award,

Jim Hackman, said that a big reason Vaughn won the award was his “success in transforming The University of Tampa into a prestigious institution and his community leadership.”

“Under Ron’s leadership, the University has enjoyed a period of growth and expansion unlike any in its history,” Hackman continued.

President Vaughn was also previously awarded the Tampa Bay CEO of the Year award for community action by Tampa Bay CEO Magazine.

Another UT official, Casey Stevens, also received an award during the 2007 Association of Fraternity Advisors Annual Meeting in Cincinnati.

Stevens, the Assistant Director of Civic Engagement at UT, received the Outstanding Volunteer Award for exceeding expectations in her service to the Association.

According to the Association of Fraternity Advisors, or the AFA, individuals who receive the Outstanding Volunteer Award “have followed through with commitments, and have achieved beyond the scope of their position descriptions.”

Steven’s nominator said of her, “I have truly been amazed by Casey’s ability to empower her committee and to create an amazing new program that will benefit the newest members of our profession.”

Stevens served the AFA as the 2007 chair of the First 90 Days Committee, a program developed for fraternity and sorority professionals transitioning into a new position.
