Employee Excellence Awards Presented to 4 ASU Staff
Four staff members have been named recipients of Employee Excellence Awards for their job performance at Angelo State University during the 2007 calendar year.
They are Suzanne Campbell, head, West Texas Collection, Porter Henderson Library; Lee Morris, utility worker, grounds, Facilities Management; Cam Stone, associate registrar, Registrar’s Office; and Dwayne Wilson, support services sergeant, University Police.
The Employee Excellence Awards are given each spring semester in recognition of outstanding job performance during the preceding calendar year. The awards recognize non-teaching staff members whose job performance exceeds the customary standards or who exhibit outstanding skills or dedication while performing special projects. Each of the four recipients received a plaque and $300 honorarium.
Honorees were selected by a committee of the ASU Staff Senate from 25 staff members nominated by their fellow employees for outstanding overall job performance or outstanding performance on a special project.
An ASU employee since 1996, Campbell was praised for consistently going above and beyond her job description in the performance of her duties at the West Texas Collection, a regional repository of historical papers, photos and other materials. She was lauded for her commitment to expand learning opportunities not only for ASU students but also students and citizens of the region. Her active community service was also recognized.
Morris joined the ASU staff in 2001 and oversees furniture moves, the swimming pool and maintenance of the athletic fields. He was praised for his dedication, such as volunteering to be on-call after hours for maintenance needs, and his commitment to doing the best at whatever he does. He was acknowledged for his positive attitude at all times and his desire to ensure that all of his campus contacts are pleased with the work he has done.
A member of the ASU staff since 2001, Stone is responsible for the daily operations of the Registrar’s Office. He was lauded for the caring manner in which he deals with students, parents, faculty and staff at ASU. A testament to his interpersonal skill is his regular success in helping address the needs of any irate client. His patience and friendliness provide an example for his fellow employees.
Wilson, who joined the ASU police in 2004, provides administrative support for the department, supervising dispatchers and public service officers as well as managing the department’s Web site and parking services. He was nominated for implementing RamPark, ASU’s new automated parking management system, and transforming parking at ASU. Wilson implemented the system, in addition to other duties, working at home, after hours and on weekends to make it a success.
The four honorees and their 21 fellow nominees were recognized during a university-wide ceremony and reception on Tuesday.
