Tech Presents April TEA Award
The Career Service Council at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has given its Tradition of Excellence Award for April to Monica Beardt, a secretary in Business and Administration.
Beardt started at Tech in December 1999 as a temporary hire. She accepted the permanent position in January 2000.
Her nominator(s) said “Monica has a difficult position. As she manages the switchboard, no matter what she is doing, she is always interrupted with phone calls and still manages to maintain her friendly, helpful ways. These ways carry over in her voice, portraying a very positive reflection for Tech to the outside world. She also works with the computer generated purchase orders, state contracts, etc. As they are always changing, she keeps current with these changes and in turn keeps those who do the purchase orders within the guidelines. When corrections are necessary, she requests the corrections in a helpful way rather than an intimidating way. Monica goes out of her way to make our work environment more user friendly.”
The Career Service Council gives the award to someone who has performed their assigned duties at a high level or above and beyond expectations, who has taken the initiative to promote the concept of successful job completion and has promoted a positive working relationship with students, faculty and staff.
