Congratulations to Joyce Axton of Coyle, Okla., on receiving the 2017 Stratton Staff Award at Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences. Created by the late Dr. Louie Stratton (OSU Vet Med ’55 and first Veterinary Medical Hospital director), the award recognizes outstanding staff members for their dedicated service and many key contributions.

Nominated by a co-worker, Joyce is a senior administrative support specialist on the student services team. She is described as having a great work ethic and always willing to help anyone who stops in the student services office. She takes great pride in helping the students, faculty and staff whenever she can and always with a smile.

Nominations for the Stratton Staff Award are accepted from any current employee of the veterinary center. Recipients are selected by a committee of former recipients.
