Ryan’s nominator explained that “to feed the colony of agents at the insectary, food must be collected on a weekly basis from October through May. So just the travel alone is enormously difficult. Ryan does all of this alone. Therefore, in recognition of Ryan’s tireless efforts to keep our HWA Biological Control program going, I nominate him for Employee of the Month.”

He is challenged by multiple supervisors and continues to meet and exceed expectations. Ryan was awarded the Employee of the Month award previously in 2009, and his continued efforts warranted a second nomination.

As the August Employee of the Month, Ryan will receive a plaque, gifts from the college, have his photo displayed in the case in Hutcheson Hall, be featured in an article in Insights and will be eligible to be considered for the 2015-16 Employee of the Year award.

Congratulations, Ryan!
