As part of its Staff Appre­ci­a­tion Month activ­i­ties, the UNM Staff Coun­cil recently hon­ored Robert Christ­ner with the 2011 Jim Davis Staff Coun­cil Award for Mer­i­to­ri­ous Ser­vice. A Grade 14 Rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Christ­ner is the man­ager of Com­put­ing Ser­vices for the Acces­si­bil­ity Resource Center.

Christ­ner serves on the Staff Coun­cil Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee, the Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mit­tee, the Envi­rons Com­mit­tee, the Stu­dent Suc­cess Com­mit­tee, the Steer­ing Com­mit­tee and the IT Cabinet.

The Jim Davis award was estab­lished in 1999 to rec­og­nize the sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions of an indi­vid­ual to the Staff Coun­cil. The award is named in mem­ory of Staff Coun­cilor, Jim Davis, super­vi­sor of the UNM Recy­cling Department.

The late Jim Davis was the first recip­i­ent of this award. Davis was a mem­ber of the Staff Coun­cil for more than five years and served on numer­ous coun­cil com­mit­tees. He presided over coun­cil meet­ings as speaker for four years.
