April 2014 USPS Employee of the Month

Please join us in congratulating our newest USPS Employee of the Month for April, Don LaChance.

Don is a senior maintenance worker/ dispatcher at UCF Work Control Center. He has been described by his nominators as “someone who has a strong sense of attention to detail whether processing routine, unusual, or special requests and ensures nothing is missed. Don is recognized for his relentless commitment, loyalty, and results at UCF.  Many recognize Don for his expertise and ability to ensure that all critical building HVAC systems on campus are operating within normal limits, and the understanding necessary to solve complex problems that are discovered while monitoring tracer summit computer or the carrier systems on a daily basis. Lastly, “Don is passionate about his position at UCF as a senior maintenance worker/dispatcher.”

We’d like to thank this outstanding employee for his dedication and hard work. We’d also like to recognize their nominators who took the time to recognize outstanding efforts among their colleagues.
