Hamann receives award at BGSU Firelands ceremony

Several awards were recently presented at the 45th annual Bowling Green State University Firelands College Recognition Program held Friday, April 25, in the Cedar Point Center. 

Julie Hamann, Port Clinton, received the Dean’s Special Recognition Award. 

Dean’s Special Recognition Award

The Dean’s Special Recognition Award may be given annually to individual faculty members, administrators, classified staff, or members of collaborative teams who have made exceptionally meritorious contributions in support of the mission of BGSU Firelands.  Awards may be used to recognize career achievements as well as recent accomplishments.

Hamann has worked at BGSU Firelands since 1989 when she started as a student worker in the computer lab.  As she gained education and experience, she was promoted through the system and has been the director of Technology Support Services since 2000.

Hamann is being recognized for her commitment to the College and her constant willingness to assume additional responsibilities.  Most recently, Hamann has accepted the added responsibilities of the Student Activities Coordinator while the position remained vacant for nearly one year.

“While maintaining a high level of effectiveness in Technology Support Services, Julie has organized many student fundraiser, events, and activities,” said BGSU Firelands Dean William Balzer.  “She is a cornerstone of this institution and her value to BGSU Firelands and our students can never be understated.”

Hamann has also taught several courses and workshops at the College in a variety of areas including computer systems and software, digital photography, social media, telecommunication equipment applications and computer programming.

Active in the College community and governance, Hamann has held positions as Student Government Advisor, secretary to the Budget Committee and the Capital Improvements Committee, and she is a member of the Info Tech Committee at BGSU Firelands and BGSU main campus.

Hamann received the BGSU Firelands Dean’s Special Recognition award in 2004 and the BGSU Firelands Windows to the Future award in 1993.

She earned an associate of arts in 1992 and a bachelor’s of liberal studies in 1993, both from BGSU.

It was a busy three days at Port Clinton High School as hundreds of students and student council advisors from across the state came to Port Clinton. Community members opened up their homes to help house and transport students throughout the three day event.

Students attended many small group work sessions, shared ideas, and received recognition during the event. Both middle school and high school level student council representatives attend the conference. On Friday evening, the Port Clinton High School gymnasium was transformed for the dinner banquet. Following dinner, students and chaperones went to Port Clinton Middle School for a dance.

The event was a year in the making. The Port Clinton City School District In-Service day was planned on April 25 around the conference. PCHS Leadership Council members and advisors Scott Cross and Mike Spencer organized the conference down to every detail. The theme, “Come Sail Away” was consistent throughout the event, from the banquet centerpieces by Otto & Urban to the snack cart made to look like a sailboat.
