Has a UTC employee gone the extra mile to help you?
You can show your appreciation by nominating that person for the Blue Ribbon Award. A committee appointed by the chancellor will select monthly an award winner who exhibits outstanding service to others. Nominations should be specific in identifying incidents or situations that show the nominee has served his/her customers with special distinction.
If you have a nominee to be considered at an upcoming meeting, please e-mail your nomination to Melanie Sadler (Melanie-Sadler@utc.edu), Human Resources Administrative Assistant, or mail to Dept. 3603.
All non-faculty staff (full or part-time) with at least one year’s regular service are eligible for the award. Any UTC faculty, staff, student, alumnus, or member of the community are invited to submit nominations.
Blue Ribbon Winners, 2014
Val Sample, Director of Housing and Residence Life, keeps track of finances, staffing, camps, and conferences, and has her finger on the pulse of all of the department’s projects and their progress. When personnel changes took place in the department, she made sure positions were filled in a timely manner and kept the department running in a consistent fashion. Even with her attention to detail in the office, Sample’s attention to her staff creates a great work environment in the department. “Val is always on top of things, and always remembers staff birthdays and anniversary dates. She is very encouraging to staff to pursue personal development through training, classes, and seminars,” said Melita Rector. Rector and Sharon Williams, who both work in Housing and Residence Life, nominated Sample.
