Rhonda Laws is the August 2016 Employee of the Month. If my records are correct, Rhonda is another one of those "She hasn't won already?" shockers. Jennifer Stapleton and Cynthia Stafford both nominated Rhonda this month, recounting a specific emergency incident Rhonda handled well:
Rhonda is a testament to staying collected in a high-pressure situation. She was on the desk when a patron in the Children's Room had a very serious medical emergency. Her experience and calm approach helped to communicate the need for immediate attention to the EMTs and to provide assistance to the patron, the others in the area, and to the patron's child. She stayed with the patron and kept him calm and focused. The patron's wife later reported that the quick intervention on behalf of Rhonda and the EMTs saved her husband's life and mobility. I'm grateful to work with someone so considerate and humble. - Cynthia (Jennifer's nomination essentially the same)
Congratulation Rhonda, who wins her choice of 4 extra hours of vacation or a $50 gift card.
