This year’s recipient is our HR Generalist, Jessica Jones. Jess was awarded for her stellar organizational skills, her effort to welcome new staff, her considerate personality that makes her colleagues feel included, and her responsible handling of difficult tasks. It was noted that she is always friendly and warm, even through Zoom, which is hard to do.

The Stenzel Award recipient is selected by the Martin Stenzel Award Committee (Ken Powell, Chair). Past Stenzel Award recipients include Kristin Parrish (2019), Terry Larrow (2018), and Tom Griffin (2017).
