SALISBURY, MD---Pascual “Paz” Flores, plumbing specialist in Physical Plant, is Salisbury University’s 2013 Employee of the Year.
Announced during SU’s annual Employee Appreciation Day, the winner receives a $1,000 cash prize.
Flores, one of SU’s 12 SU Employees of the Month for the past fiscal year, was nominated for his efficiency, expediency and teamwork.
His nominator also praised his attributes as a team player who “welcomes and works with you to accomplish whatever task is at hand.” That goes beyond plumbing — he also has assisted with snow removal on campus.
In addition, Flores is committed to sustainability. He took the lead on researching options and implementing new water bottle stations around SU. The hydration stations offer easy access for filling reusable water bottles and have helped curb the use of thousands of disposable plastic bottles.
In a note of support, Physical Plant Director Kevin Mann said, “Overall, Paz is what you want in an employee. He is professional, dependable, will do what is necessary to complete the task properly, and go beyond when necessary, and always has a positive attitude. I’m proud to say that he works in Physical Plant.”
