The Commodore Award, Vanderbilt’s highest staff honor, was presented to two staff members during the Service Award Celebration Sept. 29 in Langford Auditorium. The award is given annually to recognize and reward significant individual achievement in Vanderbilt’s pursuit of excellence in education, health care, research and community service.

Judy Brandon, an executive assistant in the Office of the Dean of Students, was named the university’s Commodore Award recipient, and Jim Kendall, manager of Work/Life Connections in the Department of Wellness Administration, was named the Commodore Award recipient for Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Both received a cash prize and an engraved crystal bowl.
