|Congratulations to Rena Harris for being nominated the September 2008 Employee of the Month for Dining & Hospitality Services. Rena has worked for Dining Services for quite some time and she has always been an excellent employee. She is always on time, always has a smile on her face and is always willing to help. She serves as a positive role model and often offers to work when someone else cannot. Rena frequently works extra shifts to help with special dinners and banquets. Rena is a warm and friendly person and truly deserves this recognition.|
|Scott Falahee and Jeff Kotas of the Landscape and Grounds department as co-employees of the month. Both are assigned to the athletic fields. They have done a tremendous job in producing award winning competition fields, sometimes under the most difficult of circumstances. While much of their work is obvious on a beautiful football afternoon much more is behind the scenes. For example this last summer, in addition to the college baseball practice and game schedule, the college hosted 85 games as part of the High School Elite Baseball Program. This program brings the pick of high school baseball recruits to Albion College. They have also shown extraordinary initiative with projects such as creating a new logo for the football field or salvaging used artificial turf to use in high wear areas such as dugouts or bating cages. Thanks so much to Scott and Jeff for all you do.|
|Mark Holbrook has been with Albion College since 1994. He was hired as the Director of Accounting and presently holds the position of Controller. Mark’s knowledge and history of the College are assets to the institution. Mark is often seen to be helping others by answering questions, even when it puts his own work on hold. His kindness and service to Albion College and the Business Office are much appreciated. Thank you, Mark, for a job well done.|
