Vocks receives Rollins Wellbeing Champion Award

Amanda Vocks, technical specialist at Olin Library, has been awarded the 2020 Rollins Wellbeing Champion Award.

The Rollins Wellbeing Champion Award recognizes a Rollins faculty or staff member for being a role model in the area of well-being. This award is granted annually to the individual who is an ambassador of the Rollins Wellbeing Committee’s mission to create and promote a healthy campus community in which to live, learn, teach, work, and visit. 

Vocks has served the Rollins community for nearly eight years in her role at the library. She goes above and beyond her regular work duties to ensure that morale remains high. She organizes social functions, makes goody bags for student workers, and always looks for ways to maintain the faculty and staff’s mental wellness. She goes out of her way to ensure that all staff feel recognized for their work and is a constant advocate for our facilities staff. In her spare time, she offers free ESL classes for staff looking to improve their English. She started several traditions in the library that foster a sense of camaraderie and inclusiveness, such as trivia competitions and Service Excellence shoutouts at meetings.

Vocks will receive a personalized trophy and a $150 gift from the Rollins Wellbeing Committee.
