Cheryl Wint - Dining & Hospitality Services is pleased to announce Cheryl Wint as our October, 2010 Employee of the Month. Cheryl has worked for us since September, 2003 and has been eagerly serving students, staff, and guests ever since. Mostly known for her service in Lower Baldwin dining hall, Cheryl is also a regular server for our catered events, making her an extremely positive asset department-wide. Cheryl has been chosen as Employee of the Month for her dedication to service with a smile, her willingness to take on extra responsibilities on her own initiative, her creative touch in decorating for and securing outside resources for our special themed events, her attention to detail, and so much more! Cheryl reminds us of Mama from Mama's Family with her genuinely caring nature, only she's a lot less grouchy in her delivery. ☺So, from our family to you, Cheryl, thanks for all that you do!
Doug Jones has been nominated as the Facilities Operations Employee of the Month. Doug is a Maintenance/Technician and the point person for any maintenance work that needs to be done in the Science Complex from hanging white boards to calibrating and balancing air flow in labs. Doug recently completed over 74 hours of course work with Consumers Energy in energy efficient operation and maintenance of buildings in the electric and HVAC fields, code compliance and indoor air quality. Doug's proficiency in these areas has earned him The Building Operators Certification credential. Thank you to Doug for his hard work in serving the needs of those in the Science Complex and congratulations on completing this very important certification.
Kim Butters is the Administrative employee of the month for October. Since joining the Accounting office in 2006, Kim has managed the cashier's window. Whether cashing checks or providing information to students and/or staff, Kim strives to provide her customers with the services and/or information they require. If she can't provide an answer, she will find someone who can. Her "be a part of the solution rather than contributing to the problem" attitude serves Albion very well. We are fortunate to have Kim as part of the College team.
