Charles Wells from UIS Food Service named the Employee of the Month for July

Charles Wells has been named the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for July 2018. Charles is a culinary worker in UIS Food Service.

"To me, Charles is the epitome of an employee of the month," said his nominator. "He is warm, kind and friendly. He performs his duties with care and consideration, and he goes above and beyond to reach out to faculty, staff and students to make them feel welcome at UIS."

Charles is known for his friendly smile and readiness to serve.

His role is vital to students, in particular, on the UIS campus.

"I have seen him connect with many students on a personal level, to make them feel more at home when they are away from where they grew up," said the nominator.

Food is a way for people to connect and build relationships and Wells takes his role seriously.

"I would love to see him win this award for so many reasons, but mostly because he is truly deserving."
