Is there anyone who encountered him that doesn’t have a Bill Behling story? The epitome of good cheer, Behling (dubbed the Food Dude) graced campus with his spirited sense of humor (and countless tossed candy bars) for more than 20 years, overseeing operations in Commons, D.K.’s Snack Bar, the Java Joint, and the C-Haus.
To nominate a current staff member who exemplifies the Bill Behling spirit—“Our philosophy here is that we serve a little bit of food and a whole lot of relationships,” he said—print the form attached at the right and drop it off at the mail center, box 22. Or, you can email your nomination (simply provide the nominee’s name, and one or two paragraphs about why the nominee deserves the award) to email@example.com. Nominations are due today (Wednesday, April 13).
The recipient will receive a cash award, a framed citation, and his or her name will be added to the engraved plaque honoring Bill, on display in Commons.
