SQI: Simpson Querry Institute

SQI staff recognized for outstanding work

Mark McClendon, Research Associate and Translational Research Officer, and Maura Walsh, Administrative Assistant and Assistant to the Director, received 2016 Service Excellence Awards for their leading roles in designing and producing two creative projects that highlight research conducted at SQI. 

They designed and installed the "SQI Gallery" which puts scientific images on display in the institute's main office. They also collaborated on a creative design for SQI's new brochure. This was not a simple pamphlet type brochure, and it was a challenging project. Mark gathered dozens of amazing images for the project and he personally created several images we used in the brochure - including the cover image.  Maura designed the creative brochure layout and worked with a printer who could produce the unique enclosure design. Both gathered information, drafted text, and met a very tight production schedule. For demonstrating leadership and effective teamwork on these creative projects Mark and Maura were honored at the Service Excellence Awards Luncheon held in July.
