Porch Wins University Award for Excellence
Alan Porch, the business manager in the Department of Mathematics, was one of 12 NC State employees who received the NC State University Award for Excellence on June 14. The award is the most prestigious honor bestowed upon non-faculty employees at NC State.
As an NC State University awardee, Porch and the other university-level winners have been nominated, along with other award winners across state government, for the Governor’s Awards for Excellence.
From Porch’s nomination materials:
“Alan Porch has one of the broadest roles in the college. He does his job so well colleagues often forget the difficulty and complexity of his position. Alan serves as a liaison between faculty and staff and many administrative units at the university, and he manages a myriad of budget and hiring challenges associated with a large and very active college. In addition to those duties, Alan serves as chair-elect of the Staff Senate. He has been very unselfish with his time in helping build a broader community across NC State and the College of Sciences.”
