Galer receives Staff Achievement award
USAO Security Officer George Galer was awarded the Regents Staff Achievement Award. Galer was named honoree for the third quarter of the 2012-13.
He has been a member of the USAO staff since 2008.
The staff member who nominated Galer for the award describes him as, “extremely pleasant, helpful and willing to take care of whatever needs doing.”
Galer, who graduated with honors from USAO in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology, has completed extensive security training while working for the university, including Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training lessons, Federal Emergency Management Agency coursework, National Emergency Management System courses and South Central Public Health Partnership courses.
Galer was presented the award last week by Jessica Jackson, interim director for media and community relations, sports information manager and Employee of the Year for 2011-12.
The Regents Staff Achievement Award is presented quarterly to one outstanding staff member. From these award winners, an Employee of the Year recipient is selected, who will be recognized at the USAO Board of Regents meeting next September.
