Stephens was presented with the award in a Zoom meeting with his colleagues on May 6. Inzunza was presented with her award April 17 during a Zoom office meeting with her colleagues. 

Both will be acknowledged at the May 13 Staff Assembly meeting. They each received a Starbucks gift card and will be presented with a certificate and Staff Assembly bear when they’re back on campus.

Stephens’ colleagues praised him as friendly and helpful, noting he manages a busy workload while recently earning a doctorate. 

“He serves as a role model within our department by being approachable, reliable, and hardworking,” one colleague said.

Inzunza’s colleagues described her as consistently helpful with a positive attitude, adding she was instrumental in overseeing a recent renovation to the Harvest Shared Service Center facility.

“Ronda is the reason our building runs as smoothly as it does,” a colleague said.
