This last year he has helped with so many various projects and he never lets me down. I just pick up the phone and say "I need your help" and like a superhero he comes and helps me out.
The foundation of her success is her commitment to people and SLAC. Those who work with her at the laboratory take special efforts to let me know how much they appreciate her courteous, helpful interactions. People trust her. She takes the initiative to understand how both individuals and the organization can best be served.
His never-failing ability to remain calm, focused, polite, and effective while dealing with (sometimes frustrating) issues and to get them resolved in a timely manner was truly impressive. I can truly say that he comes to work every day with the intention of not only doing the best job that he can, but to accomplish this in a manner that is constructive and helpful.
Her extraordinary leadership has enabled her to staff to grow to their potential. She has established herself as a supervisor who values each employee’s contribution. She works hard to nurture individual skills and to mentor staff. She has placed high value on positive feedback, coaching and team building. The result is a whirlpool of productivity of efficiency, as well as high morale of her staff.

Thank you to everybody who sent in a nomination, and congratulations to the 2009 awardees!
