Eliott Baker receives Presidents Award for Outstanding Service

Eliott Baker, Slippery Rock University' executive director of academic records, summer school and graduate programs, will receive the President's Award for Outstanding Service at Sunday's Academic Honors Convocation.

              The ceremony is at 2 p.m. in Morrow Field House. Robert Smith, SRU president will preside.

              Baker is responsible for keeping track of the course credits, courses undertaken, grades earned, credits added, home addresses, campus addresses, phone numbers - both cell and landline - for 8,648 current SRU students and for more than 61,000 SRU alumni.

              Baker, who joined the University in 1980, was nominated for his "consistent outstanding service as well as his ability to keep the Academic Records and Summer School Office functioning effectively while it undergoes training and transition to a new software program."

              The award, created in 1981 through the generosity of the late Robert and Donna McMullen, long-standing patrons of Slippery Rock University, continues through the generosity of their son, Doug, and his wife, Linda. The late Robert McMullen was a member of SRU's class of 1951 and served as chair of the Slippery Rock University Foundation Inc. board of directors.

              Others divisional finalists for this year's service award were: Kelli McKee, director of advancement services, representing the Advancement Division; John Cowan, assistant director of campus services, representing the Business and Administration Division; Kris Chiprean, director of student health services, representing the Division of Student Life; and Sherry Carlson, University Webmaster in University Public Relations.

              The convocation will honor nearly 2,650 dean's list students, 60 Presidential Scholar honorees, 520 academic scholarship recipients, 130 scholar athletes, 17 community service learning volunteers and the 2010 President's Award recipients.
