Get Recognized

Get Recognized Award Recipient for March 2017

Willie Blackmon – Assistant Director, Academic Resource Center


"This Get Recognized entry is to proudly showcase Willie's time and commitment to the UCR Staff Assembly and all UCR staff. Each quarter at the UCR Staff Assembly General Meetings, Staff Service Awards are presented in five-year increments. In addition to each individual’s recognition, each person receives a beautiful gift certificate from UCR.

Since the day that Willie started, he has brought a positiveness to our workplace every day. He always has a smile on his face and is sure to ask how things are going and how he can help - and he is genuine in doing it! Willie started recognizing birthdays every month, as well as planned several social events to help the staff get to know each other better so that we can work better together. He has also planned monthly professional development seminars for the staff to better themselves both personally and professionally. Willie provides such a positive atmosphere and is a breathe of fresh air in our department!!

With grateful hearts and appreciation, we thank Willie Blackmon today for her contributions to the UCR Staff Assembly!
