Congratulations to the September Employee of the Month, Denise Dodd! Denise is a database specialist for the Department of Entomology.
Denise’s nominator explained that she “is now our STS database manager as well as a critical liaison to our integrated geographic information system and decision support model. Aside from her STS project duties, she has assumed responsibility for multiple departmental needs. When the department was required to switch its web presence to the university’s Ensemble CMS, it was Denise who shepherded this process through the technical and political pitfalls and provided training to departmental personnel in both one-on-one and group seminar settings.” In addition to technical IT work, she is the project field liaison with gypsy moth trappers and supervisors in 11 states and two federal agencies, and for years has demonstrated a willingness and commitment to departmental and university activities involving students, staff, and faculty.
As the September Employee of the Month, she will receive a plaque, gifts from the college, have her photo displayed in the case in Hutcheson Hall, and will be eligible to be considered for the 2015-16 Employee of the Year award.
