Why are you nominating this person? Why do you think he/she deserves the award?

Gina is an upstanding member of the University Housing Services team. She is an incredibly hard worker and has become a ‘go-to’ person in our department. While often pulled in several different, and often stressful, directions, Gina takes everything in stride. She is able to quickly prioritize her tasks and always follows through in all that she does. She is an excellent team member and is truly a STAR.

In what way(s) does this person enhance or contribute to the Cal Poly Pomona campus community?
Gina’s energy and enthusiasm never ends. As a working lead custodian, her position takes her all over the housing portfolio, from the halls, to the suites, to CRS. She consistently and efficiently handles her daily routine but is always first on site for any emergency or ‘out-of the ordinary’ issues (which happens quite often in housing). Gina’s attitude and down to earth approach is refreshing, yet she still maintainsa fantastic customer service attitude.
