Millikin University - Decatur, IL
February 2010: Starla Street

DATE: March 8, 2010
TO: Campus Community
FROM: President Douglas E. Zemke

It is a pleasure to accept the recommendation of the Employee Recognition Committee that Starla Street be honored as Employee of the Month for February 2010.

Starla Street began working at Millikin University on May 15, 2000 through April 26, 2002 as a Secretary in the Millikin Institute. She returned to Millikin University as a Secretary in the School of Education where she currently remains as an Administrative Assistant I.

The Employee Recognition Committee received very compelling support for Starla's nomination, including the following comments:

“She was absolutely instrumental in making our recent NCATE visit run smoothly and efficiently. She worked on every detail beginning months ago and continued through the time when the review team left time, and afterwards. She deserves to be recognized for her hard work for the School of Education.”

“Like the Energizer Bunny, she just keeps on going and, at the same time, manages to keep her sense of humor, which, in the last few months hasn't been easy, in preparing for the NCATE visit. Kudos to Starla for all that she does for us!”

“I think we can all agree on this one. It's a no-brainer. Starla goes above and beyond the call of duty for us. I have been blessed numerous times by things that Starla has helped with, including "other duties as assigned" like helping me bring in a truckload of books each week in the freezing cold or bringing files out to my house when I was on medical leave. She is a gem - hands down.”

Congratulations, Starla, on such a well-deserved honor!

The Employee Recognition Committee also thanks this month's sponsors: Campus Bookstore, Carlos O'Kelleys, Dairy Queen, Dale's Southlake Pharmacy, Department of Theatre & Dance, Java City, Firewater Cafe, Kirkland Fines Arts Center, Lock, Stock, & Barrel, Marketing, Peerless Cleaners, Z-B's Hot Dogs.
