This award, named after former president Dr. Vernon O. Crawley, provides an opportunity for the college to recognize excellence in leadership by any permanent, full-time staff member with supervisory management responsibility. Employees nominated will demonstrate the characteristics of leadership, which may be defined (in part) by the president’s Eight Expectations. In addition, the winner of this award will also practice and model the college’s core values in their daily work. Candidates must have a minimum of three years of service at Moraine Valley, and employees may not receive the award more than once every five years.
