NRM’s Nita Scott receives Masked Rider Award at International Cultural Center
Nita Scott, a four-year veteran staff member with Texas Tech’s Department of Natural Resources Management, has been honored with a ‘Masked Rider Award’ from the university’s offices of Chancellor and President. Officials indicated she was recognized for her demonstrated “initiative for improving efficiencies through creativity, innovation, flexibility and being an example for the university.”
Scott, a unit supervisor, is tasked with handling the department’s personnel and payroll issues. Among her other duties are maintaining a job database posting board, as well as updating and maintaining faculty, staff, graduate and student travel rosters, emergency contact roster, jobs roster, and travel accounts roster.
Scott and 30 other university employees were presented distinguished staff awards on Thursday (Oct. 31) at the International Cultural Center. Program officials noted that the distinguished staff awards are a broad-based recognition program that reward staff for hard work, enthusiasm and dedication to Texas Tech.
“These awards recognize the gratitude we have toward Texas Tech staff members and the importance of their service,” said Texas Tech President Duane Nellis. “We honor these university employees and thank them for providing an environment of success for our faculty and students.”
Other honors presented included Masked Rider Awards, President’s Award of Excellence, Chancellor’s Colonel Rowan Award for Execution, Chancellor’s Award for Excellence, Guns Up Team Awards and the Extra Mile Award. Recipients were nominated electronically to ensure anonymity. The nominations were completed by other Texas Tech staff members and selected by a committee comprising past award recipients, and the Offices of the Chancellor and President.
