nominated by Cathy Perry, Administrative Officer in Pathology.  Mark was presented with a check for $50 and a certificate by Staff Senate President Diane Hillebrand.

This award is presented monthly to a UND staff member who went out of his or her way to make UND a better place.

Here is what Cathy said about Mark:  “We had been waiting for monitors for a time sensitive project. I called Mark to see if grounds could deliver them as soon as they arrived. It was graduation week and he said grounds was busy in preparation for that so there was no way they could deliver them. He proceeded to call the Fed Ex driver and told him to deliver them directly to the medical school. This was done on Thursday. On Friday Mark called me to tell me what time the driver would be here. We had been struggling with this company for weeks to get our order here so it was so refreshing to have someone go out of their way to help. Mark has always been helpful when I've needed something. This time he really went above and beyond in helping me.”
