MENOMONIE — Jodi Kegan has received the University Staff Employee Appreciation Award for December at University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Kegan, of Boyceville, is a member of the Custodial Services staff. She has worked at UW-Stout for seven years.
Kegan’s nomination stated: “Jodi enhances our work environment in a number of ways. She is pleasant, warm and welcoming to everyone who enters this building. She does a great job with her primary duties and is also responsive to requests for additional help or perspective. She maintains an old building, and she does a fantastic job keeping it tidy and organized, clean and usable. Jodi is kind, hard-working and under the radar. She deserves recognition for her contributions and hard work. She is appreciated and well-liked by all, and we would miss her if she were to leave. She and her work matter.”
Chancellor Bob Meyer presents each winner with a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout travel mug and a UW-Stout blanket.
Students, faculty and staff may nominate a university staff member who demonstrates a commitment to excellence and the university community.
The award, in its 12th year, was established by the Chancellor’s Office and is co-sponsored by the University Staff Senate.
