It is with great pleasure that I announce that Millikin's Employee Recognition Committee has selected Paul Lidy as the Employee of the Month for September, 2010! Paul has been the Assistant Director, Student Programs and Richards Treat University Center since June 16, 2008.
The Committee received sincere and compelling recommendations from Paul's colleagues, including the following comments:
"Paul Lidy is a great employee of the university, and has really given his all to put meaning behind his new position as the Assistant Director of Student Programs and Richards Treat University Center. Paul gives countless hours to helping the operation of RTUC run smoothly for the campus community, and also guests of the university.
Paul is a great team player! He has really been amazing at the welcoming and orientation of new staff within his department. He was wonderful helping ready the new apartments and offices of his new colleagues! Paul is really dedicated to students! He hosts events, meetings, and cookouts at his home. He helps and plans student leader trainings. He makes scheduling an event less intimidating for student groups!"
"Paul Lidy is one of the most hard-working people on campus. As a Millikin alum, Paul understands Millikin inside and out and will do anything to make Millikin the best place it can possibly be. Paul's work with Homecoming and RTUC these past few years have really shown the true professional that he is. When Paul is around, things run smoothly, and it really doesn't get much better than that. Paul is definitely deserving of this great honor."
"Paul Lidy is the Millikin University 'Go-to' guy. He not only seems to know everything about the university, but knows how to get the job done. Taking on the job as campus scheduler, Paul talks to a great deal of the Millikin and Decatur community on a daily basis, always keeping a positive attitude. Being new to the university, Paul has made me feel at home right off the bat. Every time I call or e-mail him, he always replies with a "Thank you," and "I appreciate it." He lends a hand without even being asked, and is someone Millikin can definitely rely on."
"I wanted to send in my vote for Paul. It has been a long time coming for him and I really feel he deserves it. Not only is he a very hard worker, but he truly loves Millikin and has such a wonderful relationship with our students."
Please congratulate Paul on this well-deserved honor!
