    July Meg Cullen-Brown Magis Award Winner

    June 30, 2021

    The Staff Senate would like to thank all staff members who took the time to recognize and share their colleague’s accomplishments, sense of community, and dedication to excellence. The Meg Cullen Brown Magis Award would not exist without our caring community! 

     THE MEG CULLEN-BROWN MAGIS AWARD WINNER for July 2021 is:  Jason Oakey-Audio/Video Services.

    How long have you worked at the University?

    I started in 2009.

    What do you like best about your job?

    I love how my job is different every day. It is amazing to work at a place where you can be creative, technical, have a focus on service, and be a part of the education of our future generations all in the course of one day.

    What do you like to do for fun?

    My wife and I enjoy being parents. That being said, we love to get away too. We are always looking for new places to walk or hike, and we love to travel -- sometimes driving to nowhere. Music and technology have always been an important and fun part of our lives too, live music is naturally magnetic for us.

    We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and celebrate the good work that Jason does on a daily basis. We hope you will join us in personally congratulating Jason and all our July nominees.

    Jason will receive a certificate for $50 worth of complimentary food at our fabulous University food service outlets, as well as a reserved parking space in the DeNaples Parking Pavillon for the month of July. Each monthly winner is also invited to the Senate Recognition event in May to receive a certificate of appreciation. We congratulate our winner, and all the other nominees for being recognized as “Magis” employees.
