Outstanding Service Award
Lashaway honored by Classified Staff Council
"BGSU is a better place to work because of Steve Lashaway!" wrote one of Lashaway's colleagues in nominating him for the Classified Staff Outstanding Service Award. Lashaway was honored both for his service to the University as lead electrician and his advocacy in behalf of classified staff.
A 30-year employee who retired in April, Lashaway was presented the award at the Classified Staff Council (CSC) annual spring reception on May 20. Along with it came a $1,000 check and a plaque bearing his name, to be permanently displayed on the second floor of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
"He has an attitude of 'Let's make things better," and "Why don't we try this?" which aids him in helping make improvements to buildings, processes, energy savings, labor and employment and more," said Gail Houtz, past chair of CSC.
