T-Ducks in a Row #139 – Above and Beyond Award Employee Recognition

WHAT?  Through the dedicated work of the Council for Community Building, Richland College is launching a new employee recognition opportunity with the Above and Beyond Award to recognize Richland College full-time and part-time employees for on-the-job acts of kindness, superior demonstrations of support to Richland students and colleagues, and/or unique demonstrations of Richland’s ThunderValues.

WHEN?  The Council for Community Building will begin accepting nominations October 2019.

WHEN ELSE?  There will be three nomination/selection periods (fall, spring, summer) each academic year with the opportunity for as many as four Richland employees to be honored per selection period.

WHO?  Anyone employed more than 60 days may be eligible for nomination, and the award is available to any deserving Richland College and Richland College Garland Campus employee.

HOW?  Each award recipient will receive a three-month parking pass and a framed Above and Beyond Award certificate. Recipients will also have their photos and nominations featured in the ThunderBridge employee newsletter and be recognized by Dr. Eggleston and the collegewide community during Convocation the year following receipt of the award.

WHO NOMINATES?  Any Richland employee or Richland student can nominate an eligible Richland employee for the Above and Beyond Award online at the following link: richlandcollege.edu/aboveandbeyond

WHAT ELSE?  In the spirit of R. Mobius Thunderduck, please take time to recognize the performance excellence of a Richland colleague with an Above and Beyond Award nomination.

WHO KNOWS?  Contact Melinda Andrews, x6790, or Dr. Sherry Dean Rovelo, x6238, Council for Community Building co-chairs, for answers to any nomination process questions.
