Nomination Form (Hard Copy)
The Beverly S. and Eugene M. Tobin Employee Awards is an annual recognition award for Hamilton College Administrators, Staff and Facilities Management Employees.

Monetary awards are made each year from an employee-generated fund established in 2003 to honor Gene Tobin, Hamilton College's 18th president, and his wife Beverly. The fund honors the couple's 23 years of service to the Hamilton community.

One hundred and thirty donors contributed to the endowed fund allowing for annual awards of at least $500. Contributors include Hamilton employees and friends of the College.

Awards will normally be given annually to one representative from each of the College's three non-faculty groups of employees: administrators, staff members and facilities management workers. Nominations can be made by any employee or student. Nomination forms are available electronically at the link above or in paper copy at Facilities Management. 

Completed nomination forms should be returned to Human Resources in March of each year. Check with the HR Office for the deadline.

Award criteria include making significant improvements in College services; showing innovation, imagination or creativity on the job; taking significant interest in and participating in College activities; demonstrating job performance that consistently exceeds expectations; and exemplifying integrity and dedication to the College mission and goals.

The College's Senior Staff will select the award recipients. The winners of the Tobin Awards will be announced at the Service Recognition Luncheon for Administrators, Staff, and Maintenance & Operations Employees in May.
