The Top Hat Awards are given from “The Top” – Vice President Krawitz presents these awards on a guarterly basis after receiving nominations from her direct reports. Recognizing exemplary work by F & A employees, it is given to those whose performance goes beyond the normal high expectations. The award winner receives an actual top hat to be displayed for that quarter, and a note from Vice President Krawitz recognizing them for their commendable service.
Melinda came to Procurement in February of 2011. She is the Administrative Assistant for University Procurement including Procurement Services and Procurement Operations. She jointly reports to Stephen Mack and Jennifer Alexander. Prior to coming to work in Procurement, Melinda worked for Wells Fargo in Illinois and spent 3 years in the School of Medicine as an Administrative Assistant.
Melinda serves with great energy and competence. She is never afraid of a new challenge, is self motivated and incredibly creative in serving the University. She goes out of her way to be supportive and helpful to anyone in need of help. She has demonstrated a significant capacity for accepting challenging assignments and is thorough and exemplary in completing them. She has been an instrumental part of putting form to the recently completed MOU converting Procurement into a Shared Service Organization. Her work in putting together a metrics dashboard and the other documents associated with the MOU was instrumental in helping this task get completed. She also led the effort to collect and assemble our application for the Excellence in Service Award. This task is no small effort and Melinda’s exceptional skills assured us another year of earning this prestigious award.
She is energetic and enthusiastic in her role. She brightens the office environment and adds a positive and upbeat personality. She is thorough and diligent in accomplishing her tasks and takes initiative and pride in going beyond expectations in her duties.
Thanks Melinda for a great year of service and expectations of many more to come!
