Heather Maness, a biological scientist in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine’s Aquatic Animal Health program, has received the prestigious Gabor Employee Recognition award for her contributions to UF. Only eight of the $1,000 awards, which are sponsored by the Gabor Agency and Willis-HRH of Gainesville,were given at the universitywide level, as part of the culmination of the 2011 Superior Accomplishment Awards.

Maness, who was nominated by AAH program’s director, Dr. Ruth Francis-Floyd, and research assistant professor and educational coordinator, Iske Larkin, received the award at a breakfast held April 21 at the UF Reitz Union ballroom.

(Quote from Ruth)

The Superior Accomplishment Awards go to 100 winners in six categories. Maness was one of the Division 5 (Health Science Center) winners in the Scientific/Technical category. Each of the 100 winners selected at the divisional level are then nominated for six top university level awards, and in addition the Gabor and Willis award recipients are named.

The 100 winners represent the top 1% of UF’s 13,000 employees.
