Employee Recognition
May 2006

Marilyn Treder

May 2006!

Here's what her nominator had to say:

Over the years, Marilyn has been a devoted member of the math department. She has consistently promoted and encouraged RCTC math students to compete in the regional/national math competitions, with her students often at or near the top of the lists either individually or as a team. Most recently, she was awarded the 2005-2006 Minnesota Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (MinnMATYC) Teacher of the Year at the MinnMATYC Conference in Duluth.

Marilyn promotes and encourages diversity among students and staff. She works with math students during her office hours, has volunteered time in the math lab and ha been a volunteer in the yearly MathCounts math contest for junior high students that generally takes place at RCTC in early February.

Marilyn is a highly involved member of the Mathematics Department and promoter of RCTC. Her committee work and her involvement in promoting mathematics, over and above her assigned duties, demonstrate a solid commitment to this institution and to mathematics education.

Congratulations Marilyn and thanks for all you do for RCTC!


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.


  • Anyone can nominate an employee or work team. The nomination remains active indefinitely.
  • The nomination form should include a narrative of why the nominee(s) merit being named Employee/Work Team {Best Bee(s)} of the Month based on criteria the nominator feels is relevant.
