The individual recipient of Bemidji State University’s 2019 Spirit of BSU award goes to an unsung hero whose work supports faculty and staff from behind the scenes.

Chris Haley, of printing services, has consistently advocated for BSU students and has worked to make new technology and services available to them. Whether materials are needed for classrooms, special events or presentations, quality and service are his hallmark traits.

Haley also has provided guidance and support to BSU’s nationally prominent club fishing team, which has become one of the more visible and popular student clubs at the university. His guidance helped the team secure donations of a custom boat and a vehicle to pull it. And through his leadership, BSU was able to host the national collegiate bass fishing tournament in 2017

A nominating colleague said Haley, “…is here early and works late, and nothing ever rattles him.”
