February 2011


Gladys Embry -  Dining & Hospitality Services is excited to announce Gladys Embry as our Employee of the Month for February 2011.  Gladys has quite an extensive history within our department.  Hired as a full-time employee in February 1966, she provided her superior skills as a salad room prep cook and later as a first cook.  While she left to work within the housekeeping department for a period, Gladys came back to her roots and retired from her full-time position within Dining & Hospitality Services in June 1997.  Being the busy-body that she is, though, retirement couldn't keep her away from her dedication to serve the students and she returned to our department as a part-time employee in 2005.  Ever since, Gladys has demonstrated her skills and flexibility in several areas throughout our operation.  She's the first person to pitch-in during a crisis and is always willing to help out the team.  While many of the traits that make Gladys an invaluable employee aren't necessarily seen by the guests whom she serves, they definitely know her best for her smiling face, helping hand, and infectious laugh.




Mark Frever has been nominated as the Facilities Operations Employee of the Month.  Mark, along with all the workers in Grounds and many from elsewhere in the department who helped out is to be congratulated for an excellent job in snow and ice removal during recent storms.  Many long hours of hard work, frequently all through the night, were necessary to keep the College open when most everyone around us was closed.  Thank you to Mark and the many other for their commitment and dedication to providing a safe environment for us all. 






Craig Stangland - We are pleased to announce Craig Stangland as the Administrative Employee of the Month for February 2011.  Craig is the Sales and Events Manager for Dining & Hospitality Services and has responsibilities in catering, dining, summer conferences, and lodging.  This February, Craig shined on multiple occasions.  He demonstrated excellent leadership and work ethic during the campus flu outbreak, and provided a great deal of assistance to three new student business ventures.  Additionally, he was acknowledged for his superior customer service to Accreditation Team members and the Albion College Board of Trustees.  Thank you Craig for all you do!
