US ITER wins new United Way award

Kelli Kizer, USIPO United Way Campaign Coordinator, and Ned Sauthoff, US ITER Project Manager, display the award.
Staff members at the US ITER Project Office (USIPO) won top honors in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) United Way campaign's newest award category: Most Creative Localized Kickoff Event. The group collected a total of $6,009 during several activities, including an electronic "eBay-style" auction that featured some 90 items.

Proceeds from a barbecue lunch and live auction also contributed to the total. A special poster was prepared to raise employee awareness of the campaign, and a recent USIPO all-hands meeting included a visit by Bob Sexton of the Knox County Cerebral Palsy Center, with special speaker and center client Rosie Colchin (daughter of the late Dick Colchin, former ORNL Fusion Energy Division employee).

The new award—which cites USIPO's "creative efforts in raising awareness of United Way and reaching out to employees"—was presented to US ITER Project Manager Ned Sauthoff and US ITER UW Coordinator Kelli Kizer.

United Way is a national network of some 1,300 local organizations that work to advance the common good by helping children and youth achieve their potential, promoting financial stability and independence, and improving people's health.
