Congratulations to the August Employee of the Month – April Mays – administrative assistant from Page County Virginia Cooperative Extension!
April’s nominator praised her work ethic and attitude saying, “April goes above and beyond her duties on a daily basis. She has been with Extension over 20 years and has a work ethic like no other. She is always willing to help others and answer calls from other units without hesitation. Recently she has been traveling to another unit to help out and get things back in order due to the death of colleague. She is always a step ahead with planning and preparing for upcoming programs and events. She is a true inspiration to work with a model employee of Extension.”
Another nominator added:
“A neighboring county lost their unit administrative assistant very unexpectedly in the fall of 2015, April Mays was asked to help with the finances until a replacement could be hired. Taking on this task was in addition to her normal responsibilities in the office. She has worked diligently over the past few months to reconcile reports and get the finances in order for the new hire. April is even assisting with training the new support staff member and is serving as her mentor. April is known in our district as a “go-to” person. When other unit administrative assistants have questions they often seek April’s guidance.
April is a great team player that is very committed to Virginia Cooperative Extension. She is a hardworking, caring, one-of-a-kind employee and very worthy of this recognition! ”
As the August Employee of the Month, April received a plaque, gifts from the college, has her photo displayed in the case in Hutcheson Hall, will be featured in an article in Insights and will be eligible to be considered for the 2016-17 Employee of the Year award.
