UConn Stamford kicked off the school year with its 9th annual Town Hall Meeting. It's the University's way of welcoming back its faculty and staff, while also honoring them.
Campus director Sharon White presented three awards today. One to a faculty member, a staff member and one to two community members, who make an impact on the school's students.
The awards were given to retiring physics teacher Mark Swanson, Administrative Services Specialist, Gary Faulkner, and scholarship donors Peter and Re Telep.
The award winners are chosen by a peer review process. Also, faculty and staff who have dedicated many years to the university are also recognized. Classes begin the week of August 25.
