Best Bee of the Month - December 2012- Jamie Prasser

» Employee of the Month :: Past Award Recipients :: Nominate Someone Today!


Best Bee Award



Congratulations to Jamie Prasser for being selected as RCTC’s December BEST BEE! Jamie is a member of the Technology Support Center and started at the College in 1982 as the only Media Technician at that time. Here is what Jamie’s nominator had to say:

Last month, I took a projector off campus for an RCTC sponsored event at the Art Center to be used with a presentation there. Jamie helped me first figure out how to connect it to my computer, and what buttons to press before I hooked it up at the Art Center, but when I got there, it would not work. Jamie came on his lunch hour to help me and saved the day! I would have been sunk without him. He also helped my colleague stay calm as it was his presentation. Jamie Was able to trouble-shoot every portion of the program he could figure out, and he truly went above and beyond the call of duty.

Innovation: Jamie knew which portions of the program to run to help me be able to use the projector the way I needed to.

Excellence: Jamie is an excellent communicator and teacher.

Fun: He always has a smile on his face. I half expect him to run for the hills when he sees me coming, but he is always happy to help.

Learner-Centered: He helped me understand how to do it myself should this issue happen again.

Respect: He was never judgmental in my needing his help.

Teamwork: He took time out of his personal time to help me. That's a true team member!

Congratulations Jamie! As Best Bee for the Month of December, Jamie is being recognized with a certificate and the employee of the month parking space.





Are your colleagues or co-workers demonstrating extra effort, exemplary service, or demonstrated expertise in your department or on a committee? Are they working on a special project for their job/department/college or in the community? If so, please consider nominating them for "Best Bee of the Month."


The Employee Relations Committee (ERC) has implemented a process to recognize and reward employees for outstanding job performances. Recognitions can be awarded:

  1. Work Team Recognition. Recognition would include committee work, community service work, and department achievements and could also highlight something new the group has done or is working on. Work Teams who receive this award will be recognized through publicizing the award in the Crossings, on a "recognition" web site, possibly on our digital wall, their very own "pizza party" and gifts.
  2. Individual Recognition. This is a modified reinstatement of the "Bee Award" started by Bonnie Mercer. Recognition would include committee work, community service work, and individual achievements, extra effort, exemplary service or demonstrated expertise in their field. Individuals who receive this award will be recognized through publicizing the award in the Crossings, on the "recognition" web site, possibly on our digital wall, and gifts.
  3. Write Personal Notes. All employees are encouraged to write notes of recognition and appreciation to their colleagues and co-workers. This is a simple gesture which has a positive effect on the sender and receiver.
