Edison names employees of semester




PIQUA — Edison State Community College recognized outstanding employee performance at its most recent all-campus meeting in the Robinson Theater at the Piqua Campus.

The Employee of the Semester award speaks to Edison State’s commitment to quality and sustaining positive employee engagement.

“These employees make a difference to Edison State and members of the campus community, go above and beyond expectations, excel as team players, and strive to demonstrate the college’s core values,” said Linda Peltier, executive director of Human Resources.

Amy Crow, Information Technology trainer and Julie Slattery, administrative assistant to the vice president of Business and Community Partnerships and secretary to the Edison Foundation, were named the spring 2017 Employees of the Semester. The honorees were presented with personalized plaques and reserved parking spaces for the upcoming fall semester.

Amy Crow, of Wapakoneta, was selected for her commitment to ensuring that both students and staff are equipped with the technological know-how to succeed.

“Amy goes out of her way to ensure that both Edison State staff and students have the tools needed to succeed. She mediates between the tech and the non-tech world to make sure the non-tech understand. Her caring for others is a testament to her creation of a positive work environment,” a nominator said.

Crow has been employed at Edison State for over five years and holds a Master of Business Administration from Western Governors University.

Julie Slattery, of Covington, was selected for her unwavering devotion to event coordination, positive donor relationships, and inclusive attitude.

“Julie is able to identify and tackle last minute issues without getting flustered or tense. She keeps teams calm and ensures that everyone feels they’ve made a valuable contribution to an event. She seeks no personal credit for success and takes genuine joy in a job well done,” a nominator said.

Slattery has been employed at Edison State for nearly 15 years and holds an Associate of Business in Office Systems and Administration from Edison State Community College.

All Edison State employees who demonstrate a commitment to the performance excellence goals, core values, and continued growth are eligible to be nominated for the award. Those eligible for the award are nominated by their peers and then selected by the Valuing People Committee.
