Greg Mayes thought he was on his way to fix a broken i-card reader when his family and co-workers surprised him with the news he'd been named December 2010 Employee of the Month.
“I should have known better. PAC Restaurant is where they lure all of them,” said Mayes. “I always swore I’d be ready for this. You got me.”
Mayes is an ID Center Systems Support Specialist in the i-card center at UIS. He’s worked on campus for the past 3 years and previously held other positions in the University of Illinois system.
“He’s an amazing person. Always smiling, always helping everyone no matter what the situation is he’d tell you I can do it right now,” said Moneim Osman, i-card office manager.
As Employee of the Month, Mayes will receive a special parking spot for the month along with some extra spending cash on his i-card.
