Last week, members of Full Sail’s Education team were recognized for outstanding contributions to the field as part of the second annual series of PROPS award ceremonies. The mission of PROPS, which stands for Peers Recognizing Other Peers, is to celebrate members of the Education team who exemplify Full Sail’s guiding principles, support students’ dreams, and embody a sprit of innovation.
“This year’s event had a superhero theme to represent the amazing efforts our educators put forth every day. Their passion and drive toward supporting our students is nothing less that inspirational, and it is such a pleasure to provide this opportunity to celebrate our education heroes,” says Angelique Smith, Director of Faculty Affairs and Development.
Nominations occurred over the course of a year. A total of 124 individuals received PROPS after ranking in the top 10% of their department’s nominations. People who ranked number one within the top 10% received special Navigator (Educational Support Employees), Pilot (Course Directors), and Co-Pilot (Lab Specialists) awards. Those recognized were invited to strike a super hero pose onstage before receiving certificates of recognition from their Program Directors.
Congratulations to the 2014 PROPS Recipients!
