The STAR Program

The Special Thanks and Recognition (STAR) program, previously known as the “You Make the Difference” program, facilitates personal recognition of special efforts and achievements of individual staff members who have demonstrated exceptional service or accomplishment, or have made significant contributions to attain and support a positive work environment.  Acknowledgments will be shared with the staff member being recognized and that staff member’s supervisor.  All staff members are eligible to receive a STAR recognition.  Any member of the community may designate a staff member as a “STAR" recipient.  The criteria for eligible STAR recognition includes but is not limited to:

  • A cumulative effort resulting in the achievement of a special goal or project
  • Establishing and/or making special efforts to recognize exceptional rapport and working relationships
  • Making special efforts to recognize excellence in others
  • Contributing to a positive work environment
  • Inspiring others to do their best
  • Leading by example
  • Special efforts committed to a project or activity
  • Consistent demonstration of positive interpersonal relationships which support the multidimensional  composition of the Greensburg campus
  • Contributing to an exceptionally supportive, team-oriented environment
