May 15, 2014
MACOMB, IL – Denise Sprinkle, a route driver for the Western Illinois University Office of Document and Publication Services (DPS), has been named the Al and Elaine Goldfarb Civil Service Employee of the Month for May.
Sprinkle was hired in July 2006 as an extra help route driver for DPS and served in that role until December 2006. She was hired as a full-time route driver for DPS in March 2007 and she currently holds that position.
According to Sprinkle's nominator she does her job with "enthusiasm and efficiency."
"She always has a professional and friendly attitude; her positive demeanor and friendliness has an impact on those she makes contact with daily," her nominator said. "We are better off for having her in our work life."
In August 2010, the Goldfarbs established an endowment to permanently fund the University's Civil Service Employee of the Month award. The Goldfarb endowment is used to fund a $100 award for the recipient of the Civil Service Employee of the Month, as well as a plaque.
The WIU Foundation provides a $500 stipend for the Civil Service Employee of the Year. Western faculty, staff and administrators, as well as community members, wishing to nominate a civil service employee for the monthly recognition should contact Civil Service Employees Council (CSEC) representative Alisha Barnett at AA-Barnett@wiu.edu.
