For 25 years, Colin Clausson has provided outstanding service to the electrical department of Facilities Maintenance and Operations. With a range of experiences from electrical systems to fire suppression and automated controls to energy sufficiency, Colin has exemplified what it really means to be dependable and hardworking. When changes took place, he took them head on and embraced the new technology, standing as an example for all the other supervisors to follow. Colin is retiring on October 31st, making this year his final year. He will surely be missed here at UAA, especially for his friendly nature and self-deprecating humor. Congratulations, Colin!

Kevin was selected by his peers for his exceptional dedication and willingness to go that extra mile. The Facilities Maintenance Plumbing Shop was short-handed for an extended period. During this period Kevin has stepped up numerous times above the call of duty to correct plumbing problems across campus. Just before the holiday a large circulation pump developed a fairly significant leak at the WFSC. Kevin and crew volunteered to stay and make repairs, with Kevin assuming a leadership role. Repairs were accomplished in short order without interruption to the facility and leaving it in good shape for the holiday. Thank you for your hard work, Kevin!
