Carl (Chuck) Edborg III Award – Vote for one
Brent Bassett - Great student mentor, works hard to improve the VMC and great floor coverage. Brent is a hard-working technician who goes the extra mile
Dan Cronk - is an exceptional employee. His talents in making the “electronics” end of the advanced imaging equipment work are only exceeded by his unfailingly helpful and cheerful, positive attitude. He even manages to make emails updating us that the MRI is down sound upbeat. He is a pleasure to work with. He jumps in without being asked to help solve problems, is a great teacher, and is very dedicated and conscientious about taking on responsibilities and following through. I wish we could clone Dan so that every section could have their own Dan Cronk.
Rachel Czachor - Surgery receiving technician and anesthetist, Has worked for the U for 18 years and has become an integral part of the surgery service. She is extremely valuable on receiving days because her diagnostic skills on physical exams are excellent- often picking up problems before they are problems. She has a great rapport with clients, students, staff and faculty. Clients often leave gifts and cards for her and she is very compassionate and friendly to VMC clients in general- offering help and blankets to those in need. She always has a friendly and positive outlook, does not gossip or have a bad word to say about anyone and has a wonderful sense of humor. Other clinicians are amazed at her abilities and efficiency. She makes the day go smoother and helps minimize errors through her wonderful communication skills. Rachel will contribute anywhere she is needed with a positive attitude.
Steen Erikson - is the person who one can call on at almost anytime to help solve facility-related issues no matter how big or small the issues might be. He has also taken on another critical task of helping to recruit able staff members into our College. He not only is dedicated, hard-working, productive, cooperative but also always exhibits a very positive attitude toward all aspects of his work and life. Most importantly, he is very sensitive and conscientious about everyone’s needs and background. His oral or e-mail communications/correspondences have always been very professional. He has always taken his job very seriously. He has never taken anything for granted and never assumed anything.
Sheryl Ferguson - She is harding working and treats everyone like they are the only person to receive her attention. She is a great manager and has a positive attitude.
Sergio Gonzales - I think one would be challenged to find a service area within the VMC who has not been the recipient of receiving his help. He is on time, neat and orderly and consistently carries out his tasks of creating healthy animal habitats. He consistently puts work above his personal life, working weekends and filling in whenever help is needed. He was instrumental in capturing a thief. He is hard working and a dedicated team player who always helps out all areas of the hospital.

She is extremely dedicated to the patients in ICU with phenomenal patient care and going out of her way to make sure they are comfortable. She is also dedicated to helping the students and doctors with whatever is needed. She is conscientious in ways that help the hospital save money and help animals stay more comfortable. Rose constantly stays productive while working. She is always looking for new ways to improve the ICU and patient care. She is always helpful and cooperative to other staff in the ICU and students. When she is here I witness people always coming around looking specifically for her to see how she is doing. She has a super positive attitude
Sue Loly - She is a very hands on supervisor. She knows each job and can train anyone. She fills all the gaps that need filling. This means lots of weekend and overnight shifts and tasks no one else wants to take on. She does even those jobs that she may not enjoy.

Suzanne Stone - Suzanne is a senior laboratory technician who displays all of the attributes that characterized Carl's tenure. Suzanne is a hard worker dedicated to efficient and high quality service. She is primarily responsible for immunological assays. She is adept at managing a shifting workload, completing assignments in a timely fashion and of the highest scientific quality. She fills her downtime with inventory control, file management on lab computers and central server accounts, and planning the lab social calendar. Suzanne has taken on significant new responsibilities that involve close collaboration with the Diagnostic Lab. She has displayed exceptional abilities to work with minimal supervision in the development and validation of new assays, and in the application of quality control principles that are practiced in the Diagnostic Lab.

She has demonstrated all of the above qualities since the start, and deserves recognition for her hard work in both sections, her organizational skills, her efficiency, and her leadership roles in both laboratories.
