Stephanie has been an amazing help to me as I have moved into my new position. Everyone takes technology for granted until it no longer works but Stephanie is there to help with her positive attitude and vast knowledge. Whether it is face to face or remotely Stephanie provides exceptional customer service by making sure whomever she is helping gets what they need and understands how or why problems occurred. Stephanie provides amazing customer service every time I call for help. She is fantastic at helping the technically challenged (like myself) in a positive, upbeat and knowledgeable fashion. Thank you Stephanie for your hard work and dedication!
Kati has navigated the changes in the College of Business and Info Systems personnel and the college structure with aplomb. She is helping our new secretary, Shannon Vostad, acclimate to her new duties within the new dual college environment. She continues to be one of the most helpful people in the college and someone upon whom any faculty member can rely when a request is made--and I personally have made several regarding my summer classes. This is also a role model for the work-study students as they work this summer in the professional business environment of the main college office. I hope this nomination is met with favorable consideration.

To the EOM committee:
I would like to nominate Heather Beaner in the President's Office for Employee of the Month for May. For the past 4 months, Heather has truly went above and beyond in her efforts for the President's Office. This spring she accepted a lead role in certain campus event preparations and has taken on various other additional duties due to a great deal of transition happening in our office. And she did all of this additional work while serving as the CSA representative for the Presidential Search, a position that her peers nominated her for and entrusted her with (which speaks further to her character and leadership abilities), and also a position that required a great deal of extra time. We have had five events in the last three weeks and she has worked nights, weekends, and overtime to ensure they were a success. She never complains and is a positive force in our office and throughout the university.
Employees throughout campus recognize that her work ethic is exceptional and that she is always willing to help where she is most needed. She maintains a positive and friendly attitude, even in the most stressful of situations. In short, I can't imagine a more deserving employee, especially this month. Heather has been an invaluable member of the President's Office staff and a great asset to Dakota State University.
I will soon be transitioning to another office on campus and truly one of the most difficult parts will be not having the opportunity to work with Heather on a daily basis. She is a team player - dedicated, reliable, and responsible. I am proud to call her my colleague and my friend.
Thank you for your consideration. If I can provide any additional details (there are a great many more reasons Heather is deserving of this honor), please don't hesitate to contact me.
