Wall Crumpler, teaching technician in the Department of Biological Sciences, was one of 12 NC State employees who received the NC State University Award for Excellence on June 11. The Award for Excellence is the most prestigious honor bestowed upon non-faculty employees at NC State.
Crumpler serves in a variety of important roles in the department, including as the capital assets manager and the building liaison for many of the department’s buildings. He also participates in a broad range of training so that he can serve as a reliable source of information about university policies in environment, safety and building operations. He has helped protect expensive laboratory equipment and important samples during floods and power outages, ensuring that the disruption to research is minimal.
One of Crumpler’s nominators noted, “Wall takes every responsibility and request — of which there are so many — as seriously as the next, and doesn’t stop until he knows concerns and problems have been addressed.”
