KEARNEY – Six students, faculty, staff, programs and organizations at the University of Nebraska at Kearney were recognized in August with Of The Month awards given by the National Residence Hall Honorary.

The honors include four campus and two regional awards.

Cacia Lyon of Cairo, a resident assistant at Centennial Towers West, won campus and regional recognition in the RA category. Scott Benson, assistant director of business services, was recognized with campus and regional awards in the faculty/staff category.

Additional Of the Month campus winners, with hometown and category, include: Abby Beumer of Bismarch, N.D., advisor; John Hess, Imperial, student; Centennial Towers West staff, spotlight; and RA Training Committee, residence life faculty/staff.

UNK’s Big Blue Chapter of the NRHH Chapter grades nominees and chooses campus winners, who are then judged regionally by students in the Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls organization. Regional winners are then judged nationally.

Of The Month winners are recognized for contributions to residence hall life and the UNK campus in various categories, with a focus on the four pillars of the National Residence Hall Honorary: service, leadership, recognition and scholarship.
