Fallon Saratovsky, Educational Media/ITS, New York City
Recognized by Martina Blackwood, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, NYC
Fallon Saratovsky is such an asset to this institution because of her outstanding work ethic. I can always count on Fallon to assist faculty in understanding how they can better utilize tech tools offered through Pace. Just this week, Fallon held up to what seemed like an endless list on Dyson meetings that had to be properly coordinated and set up at various locations. Fallon worked so hard to ensure that all meetings were set up on time and the presenters had whatever they needed. This was a particularly busy week, but Fallon made it so much easier! Fallon, as always, thanks for your great work.

Anton Kozlowski, Security, Westchester
Recognized by Shawna Mott, Residential Life, PLV
Anton has continued to support the Residential Life and Housing department in many ways, whether it’s conducting searches or being present for difficult student conduct meetings Anton is always willing to stop what he is going to come help. This year he sat while I had a very difficult student in my office for a conduct meeting and came in to remove the student as he was yelling at me and being disrespectful. He also works with his Security staff to make sure they understand our protocols and follows up with concerns. Anton goes above and beyond to keep our campus safe and I appreciate his kindness and support!
