Employee of the Month

August 2017 Recipient: John Lewis

Congratulations to John Lewis who was named Facilities Services Employee of the Month for August 2017.

John is a heavy duty mechanic in the HVAC group of Facilities and is long tenured in his position. He was nominated for being a self-starter who works with very little supervision while performing highly technical and important work.

One of his many responsibilities is taking care of the HVAC for Neyland Stadium and he can always be relied on to have these systems ready to go and maintained throughout the season.

John is a consummate professional and is very deserving of this award.

All of our Employee of the Month recipients can be found on the Facilities Services Facebook Page. You can submit your nomination for employee of the month by using the online form or downloadable PDF.


Exceptional Team Award

The Exceptional Team Award is presented to a Facilities Services team whose performance has extended beyond expectations and has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to help achieve the University’s mission.

A team can be designated as a particular subunit or unit, portion of a subunit/unit, or a combination of employees from a number of subunits/units.

Anyone can nominate a Facilities Services Exceptional Team. You can submit your nomination for Exceptional Team by using the online form or downloadable PDF.
