HUNTINGTON, Ind.— The Huntington University Peer Award recipients for May are Polly Tribolet, accounts payable/student payroll processor, and Mark Hesting, maintenance technician.

The Peer Award, which began in 2003, promotes acknowledgment and recognition of the outstanding efforts of Huntington University faculty and staff members. Award winners are chosen and recognized each month by fellow peers.

Tribolet was recognized by Sandy Hartle, digital media arts assistant, because she is always gracious and so helpful.

“I probably bug Polly six to seven times a week with various questions, issues, or mistakes I’ve made and she is always gracious and helpful,” Hartle said. “ I’m just waiting for the day that she tells me to figure it out for myself but she never makes me feel like I’m a bother.”

Hesting was recognized by Dr. Lance Clark, professor of digital media arts film and communications, because he is always so genuine and encouraging.

“Mark, like all those who work in maintenance, has a “can do” attitude that always finds a way to get the job done under stressful conditions,” Clark said. “You can tell he takes pride in his work even in the little things. I so appreciate his positive attitude and Christ centered approach to his work at Huntington University.” 

Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest, and has listed the university as one of America’s Best Colleges.
