Cardona, Ramiz, Daniels Honored with Cardinal Achievement Awards

Elisa Cardona and Bulaong Ramiz from the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development each received a Cardinal Achievement Award for their extraordinary efforts in facilitating a series of community discussions and educational workshops (over several weekends) in the wake of the publication of a controversial op-ed about the Black Lives Matter movement in the Wesleyan Argus.

“These have been significant time commitments in addition to their already hectic job responsibilities” said Dean Mike Whaley. “I also want to highlight my observation that these discussions have been especially helpful and healing because they were designed in a way that participants were talking with each other, rather than at each other. The effectiveness of these important discussions is clearly a result of Elisa and Bulaong’s skilled facilitation as well as their deep commitment toward cultivating a campus environment that values diversity and inclusion as a cornerstone of students’ campus experience.”

Christine Daniels, executive assistant to the vice president for finance and administration, was awarded with a Cardinal Achievement Award for coordinating events for the Consortium on Financing Higher Education assembly meeting in October. Administrators from 35 colleges in the United States visited Wesleyan’s campus for this significant meeting.

Daniels worked with campus staff and vendors, and staff at the Inn at Middletown.

“Christine came in early and stayed late over a period of several days as she managed the entire event. The event went flawlessly and in many ways that was because of her extraordinary dedication and effort,” said John Meerts, vice president for finance and administration.

This special honor comes with a $250 award and reflects the university’s gratitude for those extra efforts. Award recipients are nominated by department chairs and supervisors.

Nominations can be made anytime throughout the year. For more information or to nominate a staff member for the award, visit the Cardinal Achievement Award website. Recipients will continue to be recognized in News @ Wesleyan. See past Cardinal Achievement Award recipients here.
