Pam Emmett has been named South Dakota State University’s Civil Service Employee of the Month for November. Emmett, the senior secretary for the College of Education and Human Sciences’ Family Resource Network, will be honored at 3 p.m. Nov. 26, in Pugsley Center 203.
“Pam is committed to SDSU and to the mission of the Family Resource Network, which is to promote the quality care of children through educating, supporting and connecting the individuals involved in their lives,” said Rachel Busmann, the FRN’s outreach coordinator. “Pam’s high level of customer service and her ‘go above and beyond’ attitude is seen every day.”
Emmett has served in her current position for 14 years. She has been employed at SDSU for more than 22 years.
“Pam tirelessly answers questions and supports child care providers within the FRN’s region with an attention to detail that is needed to meet the needs of the providers,” said Ann Michelle Daniels, an associate professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Development. “Her ability to meet these needs with a smile is especially appreciated with the providers and FRN staff.”
“When staff ask her multiple questions and interrupt her work, she remains composed, kind and professional,” said April Flemming, a training specialist in the Department of Teaching, Learning and Leadership. “When someone is trying to access our office or cannot find a parking spot, she is eager to help them. She brings a sense of humor to the FRN that I particularly enjoy and seems to tackle any project and sees it through to the end.”
All SDSU Employee of the Month selections are determined through a nomination process by the Civil Service Advisory Council. Each honoree receives an appreciation monetary gift from the F.O. Butler Foundation. The foundation’s trustees recognize the importance of civil service employees and take this opportunity to thank them for their exemplary service.
