Employee of the Month

May 2017 Recipient: Jerry Lethco

Congratulations to Jerry Lethco who was named Facilities Services Employee of the Month for May 2017.

Jerry is a member of the Zone Maintenance One Call Team. He is a dedicated employee who responds to a wide variety of calls and problems, and works many extra shifts to assist his team members.

Recently Jerry received a call from a resident of a campus residence hall who had their room broken into. Jerry responded to the call and demonstrated outstanding customer service while comforting the resident and assured them he would stay until Lock & Key Services arrived to secure the room with new hardware.

Jerry works quietly at night when most people are home with their families and takes great strides to provide the best service to the campus as possible.
