Psychology Technician Rick Eves was among eight dedicated staff members to receive this year’s Staff Recognition Awards. The awards were presented Monday, December 5 as part of Staff Appreciation Day.
As General Technician for the Department of Psychology, Mr. Eves has been described as “the go-to person for an immensely wide range of tasks” and “the glue that holds everything in place.”

He has taken the initiative to design and build apparatus not available on the market, and to ensure that tasks in the Department are done correctly and on time. His innovative designs have helped turned Principal Investigators’ visions into reality.
Staff Appreciation Day’s events included two workshops facilitated by special guest Denise Bissonnette. In addition, complimentary coffee, tea or hot chocolate was available for staff at various campus outlets.
