|Janice White, the Facilities Operations department secretary has been nominated as the Employee of the Month. Janice has been with the college since 1983, first working in the mailroom. In 2000, she moved to Facilities Operations. Janice serves multiple roles in a very high stress job, all with a smile and good humor. She is the receptionist in a very busy office dealing with staff, students and contractors providing services to the College. She answers all the incoming phone lines for eight managers and supervisors. She monitors two radio dispatch systems, receives and records work orders and does a variety of other clerical functions in her spare time. In recent years she has also left the office during break periods to paint and has provided leadership for groups of student painters. Thank you Janice for your willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done and make Albion College a better place to live and work.|
