Employee of the Month – December

Tom Lemon

Program Specialist

Tom not only makes a genuine impact on the marketing and communication team but on all members of the campus community. He anticipates the needs of others – instead of waiting for someone to directly ask him to take action, he immediately begins a project when the bug is put in his ear. Tom also goes out of his way to make sure every print project is perfect from start to finish. This includes hand-delivering the final product within a timely manner…sometimes within minutes of its request. The best part is, Tom does everything with a smile on his face. He is a true example of what it means to go above and beyond.
