UMKC staff award trophy

UMKC Libraries is proud to share that the following Libraries staff members were recognized at the 2022 UMKC Staff Awards!

UMKC Libraries Living the Values Award

The Libraries honor Myisha Sims with this year’s Living the Values Award.

The Living the Values Award recognizes a staff employee who exemplifies excellence in one or more of the University’s key values: Learning, Diversity, Integrity, Accountability, Respect and Collaboration. Nominees must have shown extraordinary adoption of one or more of the key values in a work-related situation and each unit at UMKC has one person receive the award each year.

Myisha clearly exemplifies this award – we agree wholeheartedly with one nominator who shared: “Myisha approaches her work on the task force as a learner and collaborator, is a thoughtful and engaged active listener, and has generously and courageously shared her experiences and expertise. Myisha embodies all of the University’s key values, and I cannot think of a more deserving candidate for the Living the Values Award.” 

Congratulations to Myisha for exemplifying all that the Living the Values Award celebrates!
