Business Manager Darlene McCain was one of four staff members recognized with the Trinity College Dean’s Pillars of Excellence Award, for her efforts in steering the department through extraordinarily challenging times.
“Darlene started in her role as business manager just one month into the pandemic. Over the course of the next 15 months, we lost 75 percent of our administrative staff in Physics, and Darlene showed exemplary dedication and leadership by picking up the duties of the missing staff, rebuilding the administrative structure of the department and hiring new staff. She has really gone above and beyond in terms of service and leadership and has done a fantastic job,” said her nomination letter.
The Dean’s Pillar of Excellence Awards are given annually to non-teaching staff making significant contributions to the excellence of Trinity College through their commitment to service, initiative, outstanding leadership, increased efficiency, enthusiasm, collaboration, mentoring and diversity.
Congratulations, Darlene, and thank you for all that you do!
