The UNCG Police Department is pleased to congratulate Captain DeDona on receiving the Betty Hardin Award for Excellence.

The Betty Hardin Award for Excellence in Business Affairs is presented each year to deserving active, regular full-time employees of the Business Affairs Division of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Eligible employees may be nominated by any interested party. An awards committee, appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs, will review nominations and forward the names of at least two and up to three individuals and/or one work team to receive the award.

Consideration is based on the following criteria (more than one category may apply):

  • Superior Leadership to the Division of Business Affairs
  • A Spirit of Excellence
  • A Demonstrated Commitment to the Principles of Work
  • Rendering of Service Above and Beyond the Call of Duty to the University Community

Betty Hardin was a 16-year employee of UNCG, working in the Division of Business Affairs and serving as Director of Advancement Services, and was known for her rock-solid dependability. In 1994, Betty was honored with the Gladys Strawn Bullard Award for outstanding leadership and service to UNCG. Betty was a quiet woman who enjoyed the simple things in life and was always more concerned about others than herself. She died tragically on the morning of March 23, 2005 in an automobile accident on her way to work. The award was created to honor her memory.
