Business Operations employees recognized for Service Excellence

Three HISD employees were recognized on Tuesday morning as August’s Employee of the month for Service Excellence during a special breakfast with Chief Operating Officer Leo Bobadilla.

Each month, HISD’s Business Operations department hosts the event to celebrate employees from the areas of Transportation, Police, Nutrition Services, Construction and Facilities Services, and Business Assistance who go above and beyond in providing customer service throughout the district.

“I want to thank everyone and recognize you all for your hard work and dedication,” Bobadilla said. “I appreciate the job our employees do every day and this is our small way to say thank you for all that you do.”

The following employees were selected for performing in a safe, courteous, responsive, and efficient manner:

Erin Washington is a true team player and always steps up to the plate when extra help is needed,” said HISD Environmental Consulting Manager Darrell Wilson. “Her peers and the school personnel she works with always have positive things to say about her and she is a true asset to the district.”

“Ms. Sylvia Picazo believes in going the extra mile ensuring that the building is opened promptly and ready when employees come in and secures the building at night,” said HISD PD Lt. Guadalupe Jimenez. “[She] is the epitome of service excellence and human capital, and she merits the privilege of being named ‘Employee of the Month’.”

“Mr. Stanley Williams is a very dedicated, hardworking employee that handles every task or challenge that comes his way,” said HISD Construction and Facility Services Area Manager Barbara Mora. “The duties may change on a day to day basis, but Mr. Williams never loses his cool — he finds out what needs to be done and how he can best service the staff and students at Worthing High School.”
