Betty Lewis, schedule and building deputy in Purdue's School of Languages and Cultures, received the 2019 Eudoxia Girard Martin Memorial Staff Recognition Award.
The award recognizes a staff member who “in service to the university community, demonstrates those qualities of heart, mind and spirit that evince a love for and helpfulness to students, faculty and staff,” according to a Purdue news release. The award and $1,000 honorarium are intended for administrative assistants with at least five years of continuous service on the West Lafayette campus.
Lewis received the award at the Clerical and Service Staff Recognition Luncheon on Thursday.
"I love the department and the people. Everyone is so friendly and nice," Lewis wrote for the College of Liberal Arts web page. "I currently like to do pilates and yoga, go to wineries, go out to dinner with friends, watch bands, and play euchre."
