Project Recognition: An Uplifting Update

Anyone remember this?

The Project I anonymously started to secretly recognize fellow staff members and empower them to secretly recognize each other? It came complete with a medal and laminated letter?

Since I had never received the award and the few people I asked (who are some of the most loved on campus) had never received it, I figured it died out. Turns lives.

I was at a conference with some co-workers and we were talking about moral on campus. Assuming Project Recognition had died out I told them the story. Turns out that almost every person (4 out or 6) had indeed received the award. While I wish I had remained anonymous, I am happy to know that it did what it was intended to do.

Nice to hear from you!! Miss your posts. That's awesome that what you started lives on.

I guess people are assuming that the well-loved don't need any extra recognition. Which really means that not only does your project live on, it's doing exactly what it's meant to do! Excellent idea...
