A sea of red and black filled Tony Gwynn Stadium, but not to watch the first pitch of an Aztec’s baseball game. SDSU staff were being honored at the 36th Annual Staff Awards.

As attendees in the bleachers snacked on hot dogs and Cracker Jack, service milestones of 10 years and more were awarded by SDSU President Stephen L. Weber. The sports-themed event was emceed by Reggie Blaylock, an SDSU alumnus, former athlete and recipient of his own 20-year Staff Award in 2008.

Stepping up to the plate

In the midst of dealing with reduced resources and mandatory furloughs, this year’s Staff Awards were a welcome reminder that the tremendous team that keeps SDSU running like clockwork has enabled the university to triumph over tough times in previous years.

“Today, we are honoring colleagues who are living proof of SDSU’s resilience and capacity to overcome these setbacks,” said President Weber during his remarks. “It is difficult now, but it has been difficult before. And each of the people we honor today can tell you that.”

SDSU MVPs

Although many recipients have weathered multiple cycles of budget cuts, four in particular can attest to SDSU’s ability to overcome adversity and emerge even stronger for it. The following staff members were honored for their 40 years with SDSU:

  • John Alkire, School of Music and Dance
  • William Behrens, Instructional Technology Services
  • Linda Burton, Provost's Office
  • Gloria Penner, KPBS
