Stockton Campus staff gathered May 22 for the Years of Service luncheon to recognize staff members who were celebrating years of service from five to 45 years. Visit the Years of Service webpage for a complete list of honorees and photos of those celebrating 30 or more years of service.

The recipients of the 2018 Cavanaugh Distinguished Service Award for the Stockton Campus also were announced. In addition, Stockton Campus staff recipients of the inaugural Team Award and the Champions of Diversity Awards were presented. A complete list of all Team Award recipients and Champions of Diversity for the 2018-19 academic year will be published after all the awards have been presented.

The Cavanaugh award recognizes individuals who demonstrate leadership, innovation, service to the university and a commitment to excellence. Nominations come from the university community and winners are selected by the award selection committee, which includes past award recipients and divisional representatives. On the Stockton Campus, the award is given to one non-exempt and one exempt employee each year. Recipients receive a plaque, a $500 prize and an A parking permit. The award was established and endowed by former vice president for business and finance Patrick Cavanaugh and his wife Janita. The Cavanaugh Distinguished Service Award is also given to a staff member on each of the Sacramento and San Francisco campuses during their scheduled employee recognition events.

Kimberly Lynn with Ken Mullens and President EibeckThe award recipient for non-exempt employees for 2018 is Kimberly Lynn, treasury analyst in Business and Finance and 2017-18 chair of the Staff Advisory Council. Lynn has balanced her responsibilities in Treasury and Investment while contributing to staff advocacy and proudly supporting Pacific Athletics. After serving as a SAC chair-elect the previous year, she assumed the position of chair of the SAC, where she has worked diligently with her team to increase participation in SAC and staff engagement on campus in general. In addition to SAC, she has been an active member of the Institutional Priorities Committee and the President's Advisory Committee. She also supports Pacific Athletics, rooting for the Tigers at home and away.

Matt Camino with Ken Mullen and President EibeckThe award recipient for exempt employees for 2018 is Matt Camino, director of e-commerce in Business and Finance. Camino has taken the lead on almost every technology option implemented over the past seven years that improves and enhances services for Pacific students. His unwavering curiosity coupled with his drive for providing service that exceeds expectations have made him the go-to person for technological innovation. The ideas and services that Camino and his team have implemented have brought significant recognition to Pacific as a leader in technology services. He is a highly sought-after speaker and has been a resource for our payment gateway vendor. He has presented at the PacWest Student Financial Services conference for three years running. Camino was interviewed by Tapingo, the mobile ordering application that Pacific students can use to order food on and off campus, and the University Business Magazine regarding Tapingo and its adoption at Pacific. His efforts have brought recognition to Pacific in the industry as well as bringing services to Pacific that are important to current and prospective students. 

Congratulations to all years of service honorees and award recipients and thank you for the important contribution you make to University of the Pacific.
