BARNES NAILS UNIVERSITY HONOR
A staff member for 27 years, Barnes supervises the carpenter shop, working on campus projects such as the instructional support lab, classroom, restrooms and labs at the human development and consumer sciences department in the Cameron Building.
Barnes, who began his tenure at UH as a journey carpenter, has “a particular desire to do what is best for the university,” one supporter wrote in a recommendation letter. “He has often found ways to use surplus materials, whiteboards, chair rails, etc…, to solve our needs.”
Award recipients receive a framed certificate and a $1,000 check.
