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, 2016
Faith Garner, Administrative Specialist, Safety and Risk Management, is a true team player. She not only handles her job duties with grace and a smile, but is there for her colleagues as well. She’s also commended for her take-charge attitude as she manages new, large projects. And all of this while she pursues her Bachelor’s.
“Faith is reliable, dedicated, and always upbeat. Her patience is unparalleled,” explained Kellie Karaky, Administrative Assistant, Department of Public Safety.
Karaky continued, “Anyone who has worked with her can see Faith’s team player mind-set and enthusiastic embrace of change.”
Chris Howard, Associate Director, Network Engineering, Information Technology, was a key asset when it came time for the library’s relocation to the new building. He was constantly available for support (even responding to emails while on his honeymoon) and is still a vital partner to the new library as they’ve settled in.
“Christopher has been of significant help and frankly, the move to the new library would not have gone smoothly without his assistance,” said Theresa Liedtka, Dean, Library.
Liedtka continued, “His round the-clock availability is indicative of a tremendous work ethic and care for his university colleagues.”
