What does this award mean to you? Being selected as Employee of the Month means a lot to me because there are so many hardworking and dedicated people all over campus, and to be chosen is a great recognition. I try to do my best every day, and to be recognized for that is really amazing!
What do you like best about your job? Even though I don’t teach students, I hope that every day, in some small way, I’m helping others better themselves by getting an education. Plus, I have amazing co-workers who are wonderful to work with and keep things entertaining!
What do you like best about Delta State? The DSU family! Everyone has been so welcoming, helpful, and friendly.
The award is sponsored by the Incentives & Recognition Committee and Dr. James Robinson. Each prize package includes a complimentary campus parking decal, box of sweet treats, gift card, a tote provided by Graduate & Continuing Studies, and a certificate signed by Delta State University President William N. LaForge. Each January, a luncheon is held to celebrate the previous year’s Employees of the Month as well as to recognize Robinson on the occasion of his birthday.
