The Employee Recognition Committee was created on January 1, 1982. It publicly recognizes county employees for outstanding performances. One of the programs is the Employee of the Month. It acknowledges individual excellence for superior job performance or special individual efforts that go above and beyond an employee’s normal job duties. The categories are quality of work, respect of fellow employees, effectiveness of public contact, contributions toward improving organizational morale, quantity of work, and/or actions that improve the public image of county government.
The Employee Recognition Committee (ERC) forwarded the name of Christine Lewis. Public Transportation Office Specialist, to the Calvert Board of County Commissioners for April Employee of the Month.
Late on a Friday afternoon, Christine received a call at the Transportation Office about a large amount of trash that had been dumped at the Dunkirk Park and Ride. She did not want the trash to be left there all weekend so she talked to her Division Chief and offered to stop by on her way home.
Upon arriving, she found several bags of residential trash that had been picked apart by birds and scattered all over the lot. She gathered the trash and took it to a convenience station. While there, she also noticed large pieces of siding and tires that had been duped there. So she called and made arrangements for the county to remove them.
The Calvert Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) presented Christine a framed certificate and a check at their May 1, 2018 meeting.
Congratulations on a job well done, Christine!
