January 26, 2011

Debbie Plummer provides great service on a daily basis with friendliness and efficiency, says Kris Worl from Human Development and Family Studies, who nominated Debbie for the Everyday Hero Award.

Administrative Assistant III

Debbie moved to Colorado from Indiana and began working at CSU. She worked for 14 years with ACNS before moving in 2003 to Telecommunications.

“She provides great service on a daily basis with friendliness and efficiency,” Kris says.

Invaluable worker

Kris noted a specific example of the high level of service Debbie helped to provide. “In July this year, she was inundated with telephone move/install orders when our HDFS department moved to a new building and she coordinated that in the Telecom office with the installers. She was invaluable for answering questions and correcting some of our mix-ups and changes.

“At the same time, she also had even more orders from the Department of Psychology, which also moved to the new building at the same time! This big task was accomplished efficiently due to Telecom's great staff.”

Debbie enjoys working with her staff and commented that they do such a good job that they make her look good!

Off-hour pursuits

Debbie enjoys needlework, reading, gambling, and travelling. She enjoyed a trip with her daughter to London last year and hopes to get back to Hawaii soon. She and her husband are looking forward to retiring in the future and would like to move to one of the coasts.

Of Debbie’s attitude, Kris says: “Her can-do, positive approach is very much appreciated, and she certainly has been our hero more than once!”

Debbie was flattered and quite surprised to win the award.
