Frame, Duffer recognized as September Peer Award recipients

Huntington, Ind. — The Huntington University Peer Award recipients for September were Mike Frame, associate director of athletics and head men’s baseball coach, and Jay Duffer, assistant professor of theatre arts.

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

Frame was recognized by Sharon Woods, director of financial aid, who called Frame reliable and said he is someone who will “faithfully pray with and for me.” Frame has been employed with the university for 26 years.

“His character has been tested over the past several months and he has made it through as an example of someone who is steadfast, loving, caring, faithful, compassionate, kind and good,” Woods said. “He passionately cares for his family and will never fully realize the impact he has had on the baseball players he has coached over the years.”

Duffer was recognized by Polly Tribolet, accounts payable clerk, for showing his passion for theater, “but more importantly for his students.” Duffer has been with the university for two years.

“He impacts their lives not only when they perform as characters on stage but also as genuine folks in everyday life,” Tribolet said. “HU is truly blessed to have faculty such as Jay.”
