Dr. Blake Janutolo, dean of Anderson University's College of Science and Humanities, and Denise Kriebel, director of AU's Human Resources, received the Morrison Award at a recent Faculty/Staff Recognition Luncheon conducted annually on the campus of Anderson University.
The John A. Morrison award recognizes service to Anderson University as exemplified by Dr. Morrison, the University's first president. The Morrison award is designed to recognize faculty and staff who go beyond excellence in performance and have demonstrated a commitment to something larger than self. Each year, one staff and one faculty member will be selected from those nominated by the faculty and staff. Persons eligible for nomination must currently be serving on the university faculty or staff.
Dr. Janutolo has taught at AU for 27 years, 19 of which he has served as Dean of the College of Science and Humanities. He has continued to teach throughout the years and has been the chairman of the university's biology department. He has also been involved outside of AU, serving in Park Place Church of God for over 20 years.
Denise Kriebel has been with the university for nearly 22 years, serving in the Human Resources department, dealing with wage and fringe benefit administration. She has also served her community in many ways, through involvement with the Urban League of Madison County, Madison Health Partners, Family Services Network and Park Place Church of God.
Anderson University is a private, four-year, Christian liberal arts institution of approximately 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students. Established in 1917 by the Church of God, the university offers more than 60 undergraduate majors and graduate programs in business, education and theology.
