At 9:30 a.m., UIS Electrician Foreman John Stanulis was supposed to walk into the PAC restaurant and into his surprise party. His colleagues and friends had gathered to celebrate that he had been chosen as the UIS Employee of the Month for March 2013. The seconds ticked past, and his supervisor, Dave Barrows, called him on the radio to find out his location. He was in the “electric shop,” working.
It’s this dedication to work that inspired his nominator to recommend him for Employee of the Month recognition. His nominator writes that Stanulis is dependable and always ready to pitch in. “John leads by example and wears many hats in his job. His energy and productivity is exceptional.”
Stanulis appreciates his colleagues, too, as evidenced during his party when he was quick to deflect attention from himself, and said much of the credit goes to the team that works with him. According to his nominator, “John is easy to work for…he gets along well with everyone and we all appreciate his boundless energy.”
“John is an exceptional individual and employee. He has an uncanny ability to think through and address a multitude of projects, topics, and campus needs, all at one time,” writes his nominator.
As Employee of the Month, Stanulis will receive a special parking spot for the month along with some extra spending cash on his i-card.
