Ted Mims is October EOM

A go-getter. A consummate gentleman. Polite. Dependable. These are words chosen to describe Ted Mims, professor and head of the Computer Science Department. It is for these reasons and more that he has been selected as the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for October 2014.

Ted has been with UIS since 1990. His nominator, who happens to be a student, says he has been more than helpful in making sure that students progress in their college careers in a manner best suited to the individual. "He does everything in his power to help the students in anyway he can. He shows a great love for UIS and shows great dedication to his work," his nominator writes.

A colleague says Tim is great to work with; he oversees the largest program on campus without issue. He provides feedback when asked, but always with a smile and a positive attitude.

During his EOM surprise party, Ted thanked his colleagues for doing all they do to help students.
