OOPawprint, Maryville’s online student-run newspaper, hosted the Golden Louies Award Ceremony on April 9.  The Golden Louie Award was established to honor the faculty and staff who always go above and beyond, and deserve recognition for their hard work.  This was the first year for the awards. Ten categories were created. Students, faculty, and staff were asked to nominate the faculty or staff member who they thought best deserved each award.  Dr. Sangoseni received the most nominations for Most Generous.

Dr. Sangoseni was presented with the Outstanding Adviser of the Year Award during the All Faculty meeting on May 5.
