Subject: D- 4 Employee of the Month: Chris Kimball, PSS - Collier > Seminole State Park
Congratulations to District 4 Employee of the Month for December 2006, Chris Kimball, Park Service Specialist of Collier - Seminole State Park! This program recognizes employees who consistently exhibit an attitude of dedication, enthusiasm, professionalism, self-motivation, and cooperation toward the Florida Park Service and its mission.
Chris has consistently gone above his normal duties to assist management and staff in many capacities. One example of this is even though he was off-duty, he has come into the park to help search for park visitors who were overdue to return from canoe trips. He has also taken on the task of diagnosing and fixing computer problems.
His nominator stated "Chris has been a selfless contributor to park operations; filling in on a moment's notice for other staff and taking on numerous odd jobs with a great can-do attitude". Chris is a critical member of the District 4 team.
Please share this news with all of your park staffs, and consider recognizing those staff members that are making a difference in District 4 and in the Florida Park Service!
