Cathy Howard Receives President's Award of Excellence

Catherine Howard, Ph.D., vice provost, Division of Community Engagement, received the President's Award of Excellence at the 46th annual service awards reception held Oct. 4. The award is the highest honor the university can bestow upon staff and A&P faculty, and it recognizes one exceptional person for their contributions to VCU or VCU Health throughout their career.

The event featured remarks from VCU President Michael Rao, Ph.D., Faculty Senate President Scott Street, Ph.D., and Staff Senate President Lauren Katchuk.

“What I love about VCU — and therefore what I love about all of you, because you are VCU — is that you are committed to doing those difficult things that very few others are willing to do,” Rao said in welcoming remarks. “You are always thinking ahead about what this university needs to be, about what Richmond needs to be — and can be — going forward. Thank you for what you are doing.”
