Student Activities Awards 2020

Captain Bradley Award

The Captain Bradley Award is given to an individual who does whatever is in his or her power to help students succeed. He or she works tirelessly to ensure that students’ programmatic needs are realized and supports the student learning process daily. This person not only puts their all into their own role in their department but also goes above and beyond to help other departments and fill in wherever needed. This individual has served as a staff facilitator for service immersion program, has stayed many late nights to help out during our events, and have sat on many panels and committees to help us do important work. It truly takes a village to do this work and this year we would like to present Vicki Nucci, Alcohol and Other Drugs Prevention Coordinator with the Captain Bradley Award.
