The Delta State University Staff Council recently honored Margaret Katembe, acquisitions and accounting coordinator for the university library, as the February 2017 Employee of the Month.
Katembe, a native of Kenya, has been working in the library since 2013.
“Thank you for nominating me as Employee of the Month,” said Katembe. “Working in the library is a team effort environment, and it makes it such a wonderful place to work. It is extra special to be honored and appreciated in such a manner. I know we all work hard in our areas, and I appreciate my colleagues and members of the Staff Council for this nomination.”
Katembe is a two-time graduate of Delta State with a bachelor’s and master’s of business administration.
Her husband, Dr. William Katembe, is an associate professor of biology at Delta State. The couple has three children who attend the Cleveland School District.
Each Employee of the Month winner receives a plaque, monetary award, an engraved insulated coffee mug, a free parking decal courtesy of the campus police department, a box of treats from The Sweetery, a parking spot of their choice, marquee announcement and website recognition.
Delta State’s Staff Council serves as a liaison between the administration and the staff to provide a formal process for staff to discuss issues involving university policies and procedures and to forward ideas, recommendations and opinions to the president.
