 James L. McDonough Annual “We C.A.R.E.” Employee Award

Continuous Awarding & Recognition of our Employees



In 2002, a campaign was launched within the Administration and Finance Office, with a focus on improving support for our employees and our internal and external clients. The theme of this campaign was “We C.A.R.E.” (Continually Awarding and Recognizing Employees), reflecting our intentions to deliver consistently good service to our various customers to help them achieve excellence in their work. The current employee recognition award, and the expanded training and development program for employees, grew from these beginnings.

We Care Award

This years’ recipient joined Administration and Finance in 2004. She is highly responsive and supportive as an agent of customer service, going above and beyond on a daily basis to help customers with their needs. Her achievements include the production and maintenance of strong, solid documentation for our processes; rigorous testing of upgrades; strong and professional oversight of FIP processes such as our RMR functions and maintenance of FOAPAL elements—in that final task, she regularly beats FIP’s turnaround time on FOAPAL change requests (which is 24 hours) by 23 hours or more, often completing tasks with a level of efficiency that has a ripple effect on what other departments are able to accomplish. She encourages camaraderie in the office and proudly wears her Aggie gear. Please join us in congratulating Lynne McClure-Flores.
