Bucky Buchanan and Freddie Lipata, both assistant directors of the Campus Recreation Services office, walked away with distinctive honors from the annual Salute to Student Affairs awards program held Wednesday, May 23, 2018 in the Alumni Center.
Buchanan, who heads the recreation fitness programming and facilities, won for Outstanding Support Staff awarded to the individual whose job is to maintain the everyday operations of their department and/or the Division. The individual assists departments, students, and the campus as a whole and makes a positive impact on everything he does.
Lipata, a 10-year veteran of the intramural recreational sports side of things, collected the very prestigious Victor K. Wilson Service to Students Award. The award is given to an individual who demonstrates a student-centered approach of advocacy and empowerment to provide exemplary service to College of Charleston students. This award may also be given to someone who consistently inspires individuals or student organizations to go beyond normal expectations to accomplish goals, institute change, or make a difference.
Congratulations to each of our assistant directors who are instrumental in making a lot of people happy each day!
