Medical Education Employee is ‘You Make a Difference’ Winner

ECQ Awards 03_2015 08Congratulations to Maryann Dennis of the Dept. of Medical Education, Paul L. Foster School of Medicine on being the “You Make a Difference” March 2015 Quarterly Employee winner.

Dennis’ nomination form read “No task is ever asked of Maryann that she doesn’t complete with a smile. She is always willing to help out and step up to the plate when anyone around her needs assistance. Even if she doesn’t have an answer right away she will not rest until she finds it. There are many occasions where she has stopped what she is doing to lend a helping hand. She goes above and beyond her duties to make sure her coworkers and supervisors are ok.

“Maryann also doesn’t stop to think whether the task asked of her is hers or not, she always does what she is asked and gives it 110%. When the Department has been short of administrative support, she not only completed her duties but took on many extra duties without hesitation so the work flow can continue. She has excelled in those duties and hers until the positions have been filled. She is always willing to help new staff.”

  • Dennis and other winners of the You Make a Difference quarterly award receive:
  • Engraved award
  • Designated VIP employee parking space for entire quarter
  • Engraved name on campus award plaque
  • One day (8 hours) off without deducting vacation time, with appropriate supervisor approval

The next quarterly award is set for June, 2015. The deadline to submit a nomination is April 30. Nomination form will be emailed campus wide. For more information email:
