Residence Life painter Joey Moughan named the UIS Employee of the Month for May

Joey Moughan, a painter for the Department of Residence Life, has been named the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for May.

According to his supervisor, Moughan is very passionate about his work and maintains a critical eye to detail as he strives for perfection in his work.

“Joey takes great pride in the work he does, wanting to leave a favorable impression both for the students and colleagues,” said his supervisor. “Joey excels in providing exemplary service in a very timely manner. So much so that other departments have often requested Joey’s services for projects that require a fast turn-around, or delicate work.”

Recently, Moughan was asked to repair work that was done poorly to a piece of hanging wall art. He was able to remove the bubbling and excessive amount of wall paper glue with no damage to the wallpaper.

“Joey would rather see a job not done then done poorly,” said his supervisor. “He maintains a strong quality of work at all times as well as a strong work ethic.”

Moughan is also known for working well with his colleagues, always being respectful towards staff, students and the public, while maintaining a positive attitude about his work.

“Joey enjoys the kind of work he does and it shows daily,” said his supervisor.

Outside of UIS, Moughan is heavily involved with the Toys for Tots program during the holiday season where he’s helped raise thousands of dollars in donations.

“I feel he is an outstanding candidate for Employee of the Month and a role model for what a UIS employee can be,” said his supervisor.
