AwardCampus Safety magazine (CS) is pleased to announce that Stan Skipworth, Claremont University Consortium’s director of campus safety; Lisa Terry, University of North Carolina Health Care’s director of hospital police and transportation; and Kevin Wren, Rock Hill (S.C.) Schools’ director of campus security systems have been names this year’s Directors of the Year.

Some of the accomplishments that lead to Skipworth winning the top spot in the higher education sector included his legislative activities with the California College and University Police Chiefs Association, as well as his launching of a student assistant program.

Terry started sending all of her department’s security officers to the Homeland Security Center for Domestic Preparedness. Additionally, her department now has the ability to view UNC’s more than 2,200 cameras from multiple sites, which has helped with investigations.

Wren executed more than $5 million in security-driven capital improvements involving structural upgrades for access control, visitor management, video surveillance, digital radios and fences. He also rolled out a district-wide online safety training system that led to an 18 percent decrease in accidents and crimes.

According to CS Executive Editor Robin Hattersley, the competition was tight, which made judging the entries difficult.
