Recognition was given to the team members who participated in the Leadership Education and Development Program in 2022, team members who successfully completed the CPR/First Aid course since it began in April, and the 2023 Strategic Teams were also announced.

The Building Futures, Maintaining Excellence Awards were given by Senior Associate Vice Chancellor/Associate Vice President David Oliver. There were four awards distributed in total including two for individuals and two team awards.

These finalist’s included Nick Lara, Michelle Le, Alvin Hall, Dormese Senegal, Connie Hammack, Ana De Los Reyes, Kerry Prejean, Jim Taylor, Allison Wright, and Jesus “Chuy” Aguirre.

The Building Futures Employee Award was given to Department Business Administrator Michelle Le for being a tremendous resource to the department’s financial operations. Her dedication is remarkable and crucial to continuity of operation.

The Maintaining Excellence Employee Award was presented to Assistant Director Ana De Los Reyes for her commitment to team success.

The two awarded teams included members from multiple areas of the department.

The AiM Implementation Team was awarded the Building Futures Cross-Team award for their work on implementing a new work order system. This was not an easy task, but this team demonstrated dedication and teamwork to leverage emerging technology to deliver operational excellence.

This team successfully implemented a BMS training program for our department and did a review of the systems currently in place with plans for the future to continue to maintain excellence.
