Larry Tucker

Employee Recognition
January 2006

Larry Tucker

January 2006!

Here is what Larry's nominators had to say:  For 20+ years Larry has always been willing to help me/us with any task we might have in the Scene Shop, on stage or in the theatre in general. He has always been willing to raise units of scenery when I needed it, or gather a group of his co-workers to help from removing theatre seats so the stage could be extended to offering me personal advice on a carpentry project I might be having problems with.

He always has an encouraging comment if and when he stops by the theatre and shows an interest in what we are doing. He always comments after he has helped us with a "job" don't hesitate to call if you need some more help. His wit and down to earth comments always keep me grounded and sort of snaps me back to reality when I become too stressed !  He is always ready to lend tools and/or materials if they are available; and the I would turn over the scene shop to him in a moment if he asked. He is truly a unique, one of a kind, genuine individual always willing to lend a hand.

Thank you Larry and congratulations on being named the “Best Bee of the Month”!


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.
