Metko receives Helen A. Ward Crossley Distinguished Service Award

Denisa Metko, assistant director for student employment in Rollins’ Center for Career & Life Planning, has been honored with the 2020 Helen A. Ward Crossley Distinguished Service Award for Staff.

The Helen A. Ward Crossley Distinguished Service Award for Staff was established in 1999 as a means of recognizing Rollins staff members for their outstanding service and dedication to the College. The award is granted annually to a staff member whose contributions to the College over time most consistently demonstrate exceptional performance above and beyond normal job expectations. The award is named for Helen Crossley, who served under five College presidents over 59 years and personifies this recognition. 

“Denisa is known around campus for being one of the warmest, most welcoming, and thoughtful professionals around,” says one commentator. “She has worked at Rollins for over 12 years and in that time has established herself as someone people can go to for expertise, as well as someone to brainstorm with or confide in.”

Metko will receive $1,000 and a personalized trophy.
