Who is eligible to be recognized? - Sample Comments

The ideal statement will be about 100 words in length and give examples of the person’s personality, work ethic, accomplishments, and interactions with colleagues and/or their contributions to the University community and mission. If you do not know the employee well, please ask other colleagues and friends of the honoree for information and workplace anecdotes.

Here is an example of a past comment:

Lorraine Wentworth – Facilities Management

Lorraine is a loyal and conscientious employee who manages to keep 200+ employees in check and receiving checks day in and day out, despite adversities such as enterprise software implementation, illegible handwriting, tardy time entries, mathematical blunders and general timekeeping mayhem.  Her sense of duty and determination enable her to get it all done and still have time to keep insurance paperwork in order, utilities invoices paid on time and forwarded for data entry into our energy management database.  Where Lorraine truly shines however, is when you mention her true love … dogs!  Never has there been someone so profoundly attached to her pets and this species in particular. 

Facilities Management and the University of Maine thanks you Lorraine, for your continuing service and your 25 years of outstanding commitment to the University community.
