Harris Named 2016 SU Employee of the Year
SALISBURY, MD---William Harris, athletic grounds coordinator in the Physical Plant, recently was named Salisbury University’s 2016 Employee of the Year.
Announced during SU’s annual Employee Appreciation Day, the award included a $1,000 cash prize.
Harris, one of SU’s 12 SU Employees of the Month for the 2015 fiscal year, was nominated in May for his dedication and the positive impact his hard work has made within the Physical Plant. Harris served as the campus’ interim assistant director of horticulture for 22 months.
“There was a staffing shortage [at that time] negatively impacting the appearance of the grounds,” said his nominator, Kevin Mann, Physical Plant director. The entire Horticulture and Grounds Department worked additional hours trying to bring the appearance of the campus back up to standards. Bill had a positive effect on the department by training new and existing staff, and implementing new policies, procedures and standards to develop a systematic way of maintaining and improving the campus grounds.”
In addition, Harris’ regular duties include working with athletic team coaches and staff to maintain the East Campus athletic fields.
