The Points of Excellence Award for February 2011 goes to Gary Blurton of the Physical Plant.
As our chief housekeeper for the Art Department, Gary has cheerfully worked to keep our studios and offices in top condition. With all of the creative activity in the Ophelia Parrish Building, there is always much to clean. From ink and paint in the sinks, the tons of scrap matboard and foamcore, and the trash we routinely generate in our offices and classrooms; Gary has kept our area neat and clean. He is dependable and always willing to go the extra mile for us. He is always friendly and cheerful to faculty and students. In a word, Gary is a model employee and a person who has earned everyone’s friendship and respect.
It is with great pleasure that the Points of Excellence Award for February 2011 be presented to Gary Blurton, as he exemplifies the true spirit of service to Truman, its students and the Kirksville Community.
Diane Moore has always provided outstanding support for the Theatre Department. She is an intelligent, dedicated individual who is equally helpful to faculty and students. We are very comfortable sending students to her as she teaches them about the monetary issues involved in doing theatre. I’ve also been able to give her logistical problems such as scheduling and committee work and I know she’ll take care of the details in a timely and efficient manner. With the reduction in staffing, she is now gracefully providing support to the Art, Music and Theatre Departments. I don’t know how she does it, but I am in awe of her abilities.
