Employee of the Month Winners
 
Tuesday
Lucy - Black Creek Capital
Senior
 
Lucy has become an integral part of our front desk team. She is dependable and hard working and excels in every task she undertakes. During the holidays, she filled in for one of the receptionists who was out on vacation and did an outstanding job. She keeps our office supplies in check and helps with special projects. Everyone likes her because she is efficient and kind.
 
 
 
Wednesday 
Juan - U.S. Mint
Junior
 
I would like to recognize Juan's efforts in preparing the Mint’s Mint Condition newsletter. When Juan expressed an interest in helping with the newsletter, I had no idea what to expect. Knowing what a challenge the newsletter can be for my more experienced employees, I gave Juan a few guidelines and told him to be creative! I was so surprised when he delivered an excellent newsletter including pictures and graphics. As I edited the newsletter, I noticed only minor grammatical and formatting edits were needed.

I let Juan know what an excellent job he did on the newsletter and how impressed I was with his hard work. In addition, Juan proactively came to me last week inquiring about stories to put in the next newsletter. Juan continues to impress me with his positive attitude and strong work ethic. He keeps me on my toes in a positive way and I admire his eagerness to always take on additional challenges. Juan is an incredible asset to our team and his hard work should be recognized and acknowledged.
 
Thursday
Samantha - Colorado Nonprofit Association
Junior
 
The last two times Sam was in we've given her some hefty and important projects that required a lot of work in our database. They were time sensitive - we needed the work done quickly and accurately and Sam did both. What we thought would take her two days took her six hours. What we thought might be confusing and hard - she handled with grace and ease. We feel confident with every task we give her that she will be as detailed and thoughtful as we need her to be.
 
 
Friday
Mario - MWH
Sophomore
 
We want to recognize Mario for the hard work he put in working over the holiday break. He was only planning to work for one of the weeks but ended up working all but 2 days of his time off from school. He was invaluable during that time as many people are on vacation and he was able to help cover many mail, facility and phone coverage duties for those that were out. He also worked on a rather tedious scanning project; and his help in getting that done has been great. And through it all he exudes professionalism and is polite and courteous..ALL THE TIME. We love having Mario here as one of our Arrupe interns.
 
Friday
Isabel - Marrick Medical
Freshman
 
Isabel comes in ready to work and conquer any task that may be asked of her! She is friendly to all associates, enjoys being busy, puts her head down and works hard. She is self-sufficient and pleasant to be around. We love having Isabel here at Marrick Medical.

Wednesday
Lizbeth - Bureau of Land Management
Sophomore
 
Lizbeth has been very beneficial to this organization by helping us organize and prepare over 30 square feet (well over 7,500 files) of official records for shipment to the Federal Records Center for long-term storage. Organizing the files, creating spreadsheets (inventories) that identify the documents, and completing the final steps before shipment will allow BLM to properly handle these important documents. Further, her ability and willingness to help in other areas for scanning of documents, organizing our map sales area, and basically anything I ask her to do is remarkable. Lizbeth's positive attitude and ability to assist in any aspect of the position will serve her well in meeting her life goals. Lizbeth is very deserving of this Employee of the Month recognition!

Thursday
Darian - Mile High Ministries
Freshman
 
Darian has been incredible. He has taken on every task with care and efficiency. He is always willing to learn and he is a great presence in our office and an asset to our weekly work flow. Darian has exceeded my expectations by completing every task given him without needing much guidance or assistance - he leaves our office better than he found it and takes a big weight off of staff by finishing everything we give to him with excellence. Darian is very mature and hardworking and we all look forward to the great things he will contribute to this world.
 
Thursday
Josephine - U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
Sophomore
 
I would like to nominate Josephine for the Employee of the Month award for her continued employee excellence. Josephine continues to excel in every aspect of her work. She works independently, often bringing new and innovative solutions to problems to improve product utility and efficiency. Josephine routinely goes above and beyond in completing her assignments, adding helpful details to conference books, and voluntarily initiating and completing of a companion "how to" reference book for her Arrupe colleagues. Josephine's self-direction and initiative make her a valuable asset to our team and we are grateful to have her.
 
Friday
Eilene- The Catholic Foundation
Freshman
 
Eilene has been a team player, hard worker and has been outstanding for our many ministries. She has helped our Executive Department and Corporate Development as well as The Catholic Foundation and Foundation Alliance. She is very polite, professional, smart and is always ready to work. She learns quickly and asks good questions. She has helped our team's workflow with the following:
 
  • The front receptionist duties by answering and transferring phones, greeting guests, and main contact for The Catholic Foundation / Catholic Alliance.
  • Helped orchestrate large mailings for Christmas cards, events, and Archbishop Catholic Appeal
  • Helped with set up of events (in house)
  • Made name tags for large events
  • Completed various mailings
  • Very professional
  • Keeps filing current – which is amazing considering the volume and the fact that she is only here five days a month
The first thing we noticed about Eilene was her confidence to jump in and learn, it has created an opening for her to take ownership of duties that are on-going and hers to accomplish when she is here in the office. Her willingness to learn new things and evaluate them is an asset for a freshman new in the workforce. Eilene has an exceptional "can do" attitude and is always willing to help with any task that she is asked to do.

Wednesday
Estefani - Catholic Health Initiatives
Sophomore
I wanted to nominate Estefani as student of the month. She is so bright and continues to impress me.  Every week I feel grateful to have such a bright, sweet and motivated student, I even did her review myself which is a big step for me (I hate giving bad feedback, but this year I had none). She constantly keeps herself busy, even suggesting tasks she can do for me that I wouldn’t even think of. A real go-getter!  Today in particular I feel thankful, we were going through the communication project questions and got to a question that was “I will never do_____.” I personally felt like the answer could go a lot of ways but her answer was so sweet, she said “I would never not listen to what my parents tell me,” it almost broke my heart because so many kids her age have little respect for their elders and would never think of uttering such words. It just shows how mature she is and also how caring, especially when my answer was “I will never eat a ghost pepper again.” Thank you for giving us the opportunity to mentor such great people, it truly is a privilege.

Liz - Colorado Department of Natural Resources
Sophomore
I would sincerely like to see Liz recognized for the hard work she has done for the Land Board.The Resource Extraction department manages the greatest volume of lease files within the Denver Office (2000), yes 2000!. These files are part of a digitization project to be completed by 2017. Liz has been a great addition to the team and understands her role and is committed to help accomplish the team’s goals. She fully understands processing protocols and pays attention to detail when handling many types of files with many variables. When a tedious task is assigned she completes it energetically and returns quality files for permanent storage. Overall, she is comfortable communicating with our team, but can benefit if she reaches out to other staff members should the opportunity arise. She is highly productive; an asset that adds value to the goal at hand. She is a team player and contributes her skills and talents to the team. She has done a wonderful job this quarter and I look forward to working with her to strengthen her communication skills.

Tuesday
Veronica - Baceline Investments
Senior
Veronica is an outstanding employee for many reasons, she always has a smile on her face, she is polite, willing to chat and open up about her life, and always has done her work well and in a timely manner. I am always happy to see her sitting behind the desk. I am submitting this nomination specifically because she is currently helping me complete a large project involving calling all utility companies on our properties and inquiring about rate increases. Not only does she exhibit excellent customer service and an aptitude for talking with people, she designed and updated her own spreadsheet that was clear and gave all pertinent information. This was a project that people originally did not want to give to a student, thinking it may be too much, too hard or too overwhelming. I had faith in V -- and she went way above and beyond even my own expectations. She is exemplary and I am lucky to have the chance to work with her here at Baceline. I cannot wait to see the great things she achieves in life. I hope that you consider her for this award, as I feel she greatly deserves the recognition. Thank you!
