Brown Named February Employee of Month
February 8, 2010
MACOMB, IL – Sharon Brown, senior library specialist in the Leslie F. Malpass Library at Western Illinois University, has been named the WIU February Civil Service Employee of the Month.
According to her nominators, Brown has been a major asset in helping with the merger of her former department and Acquisitions.
"Sharon has taken the role of being the team leader for her former department and has been instrumental in helping her new supervisor learn more about the department," her nominators added. "She has gone above and beyond her job duties to ensure that this transition has gone as smoothly as possible."
Brown began working at Western in 1976 as a secretary II in University Libraries. Two years later she was reclassified as a library clerk II, and in 1979, she was promoted to a library clerk III. Brown was promoted to library technical assistant II in 1980, to library technical assistant III in 1983 and to her current position in 2005.
"Sharon is to be commended for her commitment and dedication not only to the library, but to Western Illinois University," said Tishly Herrington, Civil Service Employees Council (CSEC) public relations representative. "It is employees like Sharon that make this University the great place that it is."
Western faculty, staff and administrators, as well as community members, wishing to nominate a civil service employee for this recognition should contact Herrington at (309) 298-3157 or e-mail TA-Herrington@wiu.edu.
