The Delta State University Staff Council recently honored Gregory Sassenrath-Cole, library assistant II, as the March 2018 Employee of the Month.
Sassenrath-Cole, originally from central Illinois, has worked at the university for 6 years.
He is married to Rachel Tate, and the couple has two sons. One is a double-major at Delta State and will graduate in December. The other is finishing his undergrad and is going on to get his master’s in library science.
In his free time, Sassenrath-Cole enjoys racing his car on weekends and going on trips with his wife.
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.
