|Bob Watson has been nominated as Employee of the Month. Bob started part-time in the Grounds department November, 2004 then became a full-time employee in October, 2006. Bob is one of those unsung but very important people who are so important in keeping the College running. His primary responsibilities are trash collection, keeping all the dumpsters empty, and processing recyclable materials. If you see a large blue tractor driving around with the dumpster on the back…that’s Bob. It was his enthusiasm and perseverance in handling recycling and trash that inspired the current recycling and waste operation model. His daily performance significantly reduces the amount of waste leaving campus and entering the land-fills, but instead diverts many tons into recycling. He is always suggesting better practices for the grounds department. His current passion is to establish more ground cover and wild flowers, from campus stock, to reduce future mulch demands. You can see his handy work around Wesley Hall and Burns Street apartments. If you get a chance, thank Bob for his service to the college.|
