Two EE Managers Receive Annual SoE Awards

March 2014

Department Manager Mary K. McMahon and Facilities and Health & Safety Manager Kenneth (Kenny) Green were recently recognized for their exceptional work at the 2014 School of Engineering (SoE) Service Award Reception, which honors staff members and their years of service to Stanford.

McMahon received the school’s Leadership Award, which recognizes mentoring and management contributions. She has been with the EE Department for 4 years, but has been a Stanford employee for 10 years. In her role, she oversees the staff members that manage various functional areas within the department, while also handling special projects and day-to-day problem solving. “The department manager keeps her eye on everything, steps in when needed, and knows when to get out of an extremely-skilled staff member’s way when he or she has it handled,” she said.

Green received the school’s Safety Award, which recognizes compliance and safety contributions. While he has been with the EE Department for nearly 7 years, he is coming up on his 23rdanniversary at Stanford. Green manages facilities and safety for four department buildings: David Packard, Paul Allen, Allen Annex, and the Magnetic Resonance System Research Laboratory (MRSRL).

“This is wonderful recognition of their outstanding service to our department,” says EE Chair Abbas El Gamal.

The reception also included recognition of SoE staff for their years of service in five-year increments. Congratulations to the seven EE staff members recognized in 2014:

30 Years: David Hinson, Ivan Linscott

25 Years: Keith Gaul, Darlene Hadding

5 Years: Andrea Kuduk, R. Eric Wheeler, Golan Yona
