Raymond Barnett is April EOM
Raymond Barnett jokingly walked out of the room telling the crowd to “enjoy the snacks” after he was named the April 2011 Employee of the Month. He told them he had a meeting to attend, before returning to the room.
Barnett is the newly named Transfer Coordinator in the Office of Admissions, but got his start in July 2001 as an admissions counselor.
“I do appreciate this… and I know (my work) is noticed, it is recognized,” said Barnett. “In the end it isn’t about your happiness, your satisfaction, it’s about how the students have been served and the parents who come to me.”
For him, the real pay off is watching students graduate and seeing them close a chapter in their college career.
“That I helped and had any part in getting that started… that’s the pay off and this is just a little extra,” said Barnett.
As Employee of the Month, Barnett will receive a special parking spot for the month along with some extra spending cash on his i-card.
