Lilly-Lovelace Distinguished Service Award

The successes of the College of Sciences and Mathematics at Auburn University are often credited to its faculty and students. However, these successes are built upon foundations provided by the efforts of an outstanding and dedicated staff. The Lilly-Lovelace Distinguished Service Award is presented annually and recognizes individual staff members in COSAM who have helped to provide these foundations through exemplary service to the College. Note that there two award categories with one award to be given in each category.

Category #1: General Support Staff (i.e., staff in department and COSAM offices)

Category #2: Instructional and Research Support Staff (i.e., instructional lab coordinators, research lab technicians, and IT staff)

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.
