For 27 years, locksmith Richard Canarvis has served the Geneseo campus community.

He is honored this year with the college’s Gloria and Van Quaal Outstanding Quality Service Award for 2013. He received the award during the Division of Administration and Finance's recent recognition ceremony. The award recognizes an individual in the division who has had a consistently high level of performance, a recognizable and meaningful impact at the college, and who serves as a role model for others.

"Rick always has a smile on his face," said Jim Milroy, vice president for administration and finance. "His good nature and positive attitude combined with the stellar service he provides on campus made him an excellent choice for this award."

Canarvis received a certificate and a $1,000 check from the Geneseo Foundation. The college established the award in 1997 through an endowment from the Geneseo Foundation in honor of the Quaals' many years of devoted service to the college and Geneseo community. Van Quaal was vice president emeritus of business affairs and finance.
