|Congratulations to Dan Knapp for being selected as the Dining & Hospitality Services “Employee of the Month” for May 2008. Dan has worked as a stock handler for a number of years & always does his job with pride. He always works hard & always makes sure events go off without a hitch. This April and May, Dan worked tirelessly on many different events such as the Inauguration, the Board of Trustees, countless “end-of-the year events” & Commencement; just to name a few. Much of Dan’s work is done “behind the scenes” & we are proud to honor him. Keep up the good work, Dan!|
|Dawn Leightner has been nominated by her co-workers as Employee of the Month. Dawn has been employed by Albion College since March, 1986, originally in Dining and Hospitality Services and now with Facilities Operations in Campus Services. Dawn "always has a smile on her face, is always willing to help another person in need and completes her jobs - even when thrown additional items to be completed that day! She completes her work in a timely fashion, tries to show her student workers things about Campus Services that they didn't know, and is always there to listen." Congratulations to Dawn on being nominated for Employee of the Month.|
|Lisa Locke started her Albion College career in 1995 as Director of Residential Life, in the Student Affairs Division. After a number of years in that position, she moved to the Information Technology Division to become Student Computing Coordinator, and Director of the Digital Portfolio project, working with students to create and maintain portfolios of their learning and experience at the College. She then served as Director of User Services, until October, 2007, when she was tapped to become the Interim Director of Human Resources. As you can see from Lisa’s vast experience with the College she is a very valuable employee. Her willingness to switch gears and take on the human resources arena is much appreciated. Her knowledge, work ethic, and willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done makes her a perfect candidate for this award. Lisa spends her spare time with her husband, Joe, and daughter, Annie, born in 2007, and their two dogs.|
