Nominations Sought for Favorite SWOSU Professor, Administrator and Staff Member


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Brandy Awards honor the faculty, administrator and staff members of the year as chosen by SWOSU students, and nominations are now being accepted through April 1. 

Students, who are invited to nominate their favorite SWOSU employees, will vote April 4 as part of the student government elections on D2L. 

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. Students can email their nomination to the dean at or deliver to the SWOSU Dean of Students Office in Room 214 of the Stafford Center. Nominations may be anonymous.

S.A.F. (Staff, Administration and Faculty) Appreciation Week is planned April 18-22 and the Brandy Awards will be given at a pizza luncheon on April 19 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center.  All three winners receive a traveling Brandy Award.

“S.A.F. Appreciation Week is a week that the students go out of their way to say ‘thanks’ for all we get from every employee at SWOSU,” said Cody Sims, director of the Collegiate Activities Board at SWOSU. “We know this is a special place.”
