Rebecca Bouse, employment and training program coordinator in Human Resources at Delta State, was recently honored as Delta State’s January 2014 Employee of the Month.
Bouse, originally from Long Island, N.Y. moved to Texas when she was 13. “I started working at Delta State in 2011 after coming here from the Human Resources department at Mississippi University for Women in Columbus,” she said. “My husband, Gary, and I have two children — Garrett, who is a senior at Delta State and Heather, who is a sophomore at Cleveland High School. I have really enjoyed working in Human Resources and with the faculty and staff on campus.”
Employee of the Month distinction is given to a staff member who has provided service at Delta State that is considered over and beyond those duties outlined in his or her job description. Nominations are submitted by colleagues on campus.
Each winner receives a plaque, monetary award, WalMart gift card from the Student Government Association, 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, two Okra gift cards (one from Athletics and one from a private donor), marquee announcement and website recognition.
