John Marshall Service Award

At Marshall University, our vision is to “Aim for Perfection”. The John Marshall Service Award recognizes staff that supports our vision by providing exceptional service to our students, coworkers, and the community in which we serve.

Do you know of a staff member in the Marshall University family who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide outstanding customer service?  Who goes the extra mile to help out or strives to bring out the “We Are Marshall” spirit in others?  If you do, please take the time to nominate him/her for the John Marshall Service Award.

  • Outstanding and sustained performance of assigned duties.
  • Significant and positive impact on the University or community (identify accomplishments).
