Gregory Dorn receives University of Nebraska Kudos award

Kudos Recipient

Gregory Dorn, research technologist II with the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture, has received the University of Nebraska Kudos award.

Dorn, an employee since March 1994, is responsible for conducting and supervising the wheat, barley and triticale field research program. This involves planting, harvesting, seed stock maintenance, data collection and analysis for sites from Lincoln to Sidney, and translating plot data to the fields in which the crop will be grown.

Nominators wrote that Dorn is the glue that holds the field team together for the work strategy, pace and timing. While constantly multitasking, he has excellent judgment and knowledge to make critical field decisions. He welcomes graduate students from all over the world and helps keep them on track.

“He continually creates and sustains trustful relationships with field cooperators, graduate students, co-workers and suppliers. These relationships form the foundation of the team driven to keep Nebraska’s small grains program moving forward,” were among the nominator comments. Wrote another: “He is great with people and can work with anyone.”

Dorn received the Outstanding Employee Award in October 2008. This made him eligible for the Kudos, for which he was recognized at the October 2012, meeting of the NU Board of Regents.
