Students Encouraged to Nominate for SWOSU Brandy Awards


SWOSU students have the opportunity to nominate their favorite faculty, administrator and staff for the annual SWOSU Brandy Awards.

Students are invited to nominate their favorite people by this Friday, March 28.

The 3rd annual SWOSU Brandy Awards will be chosen April 1-2 during the Student Government Association elections. Only students will vote on the favorites.       

 “Students are always talking about how ‘this teacher inspired me to choose the major I am today,’ or ‘I wouldn’t be here without Dr. So & So.’  Because of that, the Collegiate Activities Board created the Brandy Awards to honor those people on campus who go the extra mile,” said CAB director and event chair Sarah Webb.

Nominations should include the name of the nominee (all SWOSU employees are eligible for nomination) and a paragraph about why that person is deserving of the award. Nomination forms and a drop box are available in the Dean of Students Office, Stafford 214.  Students can also email their nomination to the Collegiate Activities Board at or to Dean Cindy Dougherty at  All nominations are due by March 28. Nominations can include the nominators name or may be left anonymous.

All three winners receive a traveling Brandy Award plus an engraved pen set. The winners will be announced during “Staff.Administrators.Faculty Appreciation Week” that is coming up April 14-18 as part of a week of activities designed to say “thanks to the great employees at SWOSU.”

Last year’s winners were: Shirley Monroe, staff; Kenneth Tillett, faculty; and David Clark, administrator.
