Employee of the Quarter

The Staff Senate Employee Recognition Committee would like to congratulate Steve McDaniel for being named Employee of the Quarter for the second quarter of the 2013-2014 academic year. Steve works in Housing & Residence Life as a Maintenance Supervisor. His service and dedication during Quarter II (October – December) is greatly appreciated.

Excerpt from his nomination:

“Steve works VERY hard to make sure our residents on campus are “taken care of” and has a wonderful attitude while doing it… even if that means working after hours or doing extra work, he makes a big impact on our students even if they don’t see him working behind the scenes. He is an excellent leader and never waits to be told to do anything, if he sees something that needs to be fixed, he does it right then. He also takes care of the maintenance staff, including his supervisors.

Steve came in on Friday when the university was closed to scrape ice and to be on campus to do work orders for the students who lived on campus. He was not asked to do this and this is not part of his job duties. Steve came in and worked the Sunday after the ice storm to help clear sidewalks and ADA ramps so that UCA staff and faculty could return to work safely the next day.”

EOQ nominations are evaluated on outstanding job performance, time frame of the performance, and overall contribution to the university.

Each winner receives recognition and prizes including $150 BearBucks and a reserved parking spot. Again, congratulations to Steve McDaniel.
