Employee of the Month

July 2017 Recipient: Bill Mills

Congratulations to Bill Mills who was named Facilities Services Employee of the Month for July 2017.

Bill is nominated for having a great attitude and strong work ethic while tackling the large work load he and his team take on every day.

He is courteous and always willing to go the extra mile to help others in the department whenever and wherever he can.

Bill is passionate about UT and his job here. He is always willing to meet with media outlets about ongoing campus projects and speaks to them with great enthusiasm about the work Facilities Services does.

Every year Bill helps to organize the serving lines at the department’s 4th of July Picnic. He sets up the two serving lines for more than 500 people, replenishes all items and then breaks everything down after the event.

He is dedicated to his job and the university and that dedication can be seen through his work every day.
