Bristol Employee Recognition and Awards


Recognition Programs

Bristol Bayhawk Victor

The Bristol Bayhawk Victor is a monthly collaborative employee recognition program developed and implemented by the Staff Senate and the Faculty and Professional Staff Senate. The Senates will work with Human Resources to recognize all the hard work, innovation and dedication of our Bristol Employees.

Longevity and Retiree Recognition Event

An employee recognition event is held annually to honor all full-time and part-time faculty and staff for their “service milestones” in length of service to the college (in 5-year intervals). Faculty and staff that have retired during the academic year are also recognized for their many contributions to the college.

Also presented at the recognition event are the Sceptre & Scroll and Silver Shield awards.

Commonwealth employees or teams of state employees may be nominated for the Performance Recognition Program for exemplary work performance for awards in three categories: Commonwealth Citation for Outstanding Performance, Eugene H. Rooney, Jr. Public Service Award, and the Manuel Carballo Governor’s Award for Excellence in Public Service.
