The Delta State University Staff Council recently honored Regina Haynes, library assistant II, as the June 2017 Employee of the Month.
She began her career at Delta State in 2013 in the Department of Facilities Management. In 2015, she took a job in the Roberts-LaForge Library’s Instructional Resources Center, where her duties include managing student workers; reserving items; and helping students, faculty, staff and community users navigate and use resources.
Haynes was born in Cleveland and later moved to Pennsylvania, where she lived for 26 years before returning to the Delta. She is the proud mother of three children that she visits as often as she can.
Made up of volunteers from the Staff Council, the Incentives & Recognition committee meets monthly to review nominations for the Employee of the Month award. The committee has been celebrating staff performance in this manner for over 15 years.
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.
