Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - On July 31st Mrs. Mary Cooper, Executive Assistant to the Executive Administrator and Dean received the Ron Taylor Award from Ross University. Dr. Mary Coleman, Dean, Ross School of Medicine was on hand to present Mrs. Cooper with her award and bonus remuneration in front of fellow employees and faculty of Ross University at the Freeport campus.  Mrs. Cooper is the first employee from the Bahamas campus to receive this esteemed award.

The Ron Taylor Award,  named after a chief executive officer of DeVry Inc,  is an annual award that goes to DeVry or Ross University employees who have gone above and beyond their normal job function while still completing all required duties of their position. The award  goes to those who have truly exceeded performance expectations for the year.

"The Ron Taylor Award is one of DeVry’s highest employee recognition awards. As our longest Bahamian employee, Mary has consistently gone above and beyond the responsibilities of her job to provide outstanding service to the entire Ross community.  She is always willing to do whatever possible for the benefit of our staff and students, without having to be asked.  She has also been instrumental in helping us get to know many people in this community. This is a recognition she richly deserves," said Sandi Cutler, Vice President Planning and Business Development.

When asked how she felt about receiving the award, Mary Cooper had this to say , "
I was totally shocked; but at the same time I was humbled and appreciative of being chosen for the award, especially now during my first year with Ross University. The experience, along with the leadership team here at Ross are second to none; and it is a good feeling to know that your hard work is appreciated by your employer. The award will actually motivate me to work harder (if that is possible). I truly enjoy working with the university and look forward to growing professionally as well as personally as the university grows.”
