Katherine Calloway, Matt Montgomery and Paula Norrell are the recipients of the 2018 Lilly-Lovelace Distinguished Service Award by the College of Mathematics and Sciences (COSAM). The award ceremony took place during a luncheon for Leadership Council at the Hotel at Auburn University on September 28. 

“I am proud to personally recognize these three outstanding staff members who contribute to the success of this college and were nominated by their peers for their all-around excellence,” said Dean Nicholas Giordano.  

Calloway, who joined COSAM in 2012, is a human resources generalist in the Dean’s office. She was nominated by multiple staff members for handling an array of important responsibilities and meeting daily challenges with ease.  Her nominations showcased her pleasant and helpful attitude, enthusiasm and ability to handle projects efficiently.

Montgomery has been with the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry for 13 years.  He has expertise producing custom-made precision glassware in support of research.  His nomination highlighted his dedication to his craft, his track record of creating specific objects in both glass and quartz, and the appreciation from faculty for his high-quality work.

Norrell began with Department of Biological Services in 2007.  Her nomination described how she resolves both payroll and human resources issues for her department while being a pleasure to work with. Faculty highlighted how she is always ready to help and solve problems. 

The Lilly-Lovelace Distinguished Service Award is named in honor of two former COSAM staff members, Eva Lilly and Jan Lovelace. Lilly provided 42 years of service, most of which was in the Department of Geosciences. Lovelace was an executive support assistant in the COSAM Dean’s Office for 13 years. The award was established in 2012 after Lovelace retired.
