Shepard Named February Employee of the Month
February 4, 2009
MACOMB, IL -- Mark Shepard, building services supervisor at Western Illinois University, has been named the WIU February Civil Service Employee of the Month.
According to his nominator, Shepard demonstrates enthusiasm and outstanding performance in carrying out his duties, as well as a strong work ethic to the employees he supervises. "Mark is always willing to go well beyond his job requirements by working with his employees to complete set-ups and tear-downs for numerous events in Western Hall. He doesn't just supervise, he pitches in.
"Mark goes the extra mile to make certain that everyone he comes in contact with is informed about a job and is comfortable with the instructions," his nominator added. "He is a pleasure to work for and with."
Shepard began working at Western as a building service worker in March 1984. He was promoted to building service sub-forman in 1992, and was reallocated to building service foreman three years later. He was reclassified to his current position in July 2008.
"Mark's commitment to not only his job and his employees, but to this University, deserves recognition and great appreciation," said Laura Caldwell, Civil Service Employees Council (CSEC) public relations representative. "The behind-the-scenes work he does, alongside his numerous employees, conveys a positive image to the campus community, as well as the thousands of visitors who attend WIU events."
Western faculty, staff and administrators, as well as community members, wishing to nominate a civil service employee for this recognition should contact Caldwell at (309) 298-1000 or e-mail LM-Caldwell@wiu.edu.
