Following are excerpts from the nominations that served as the basis for Lauriel selection as Employee of the Month:
“I would like to nominate Lauriel Edwards for recognition as the staff employee of the month. Lauriel continues to excel at her job. She in my estimation is all around excellent at her job. She goes well beyond her job duties in service to coworkers. Some examples would include her covering the switchboard, working with the records office to assure scheduling would be entered on time and her assistance to Linda on her first attempt at entering the schedule of classes.
Lauriel always has time to help her coworkers and continually performs her job duties at an exemplary level. It is because of this that I take pride in nominating her for staff employee of the month.”
