|Congratulations to the April & May 2016 GEM winners:
Betty Brown from Bryan Fisher – Decommissioning GNL hardware at Arlington Data Center. Betty’s effort was not insignificant and she was not required to do this for GNL. Her efforts are very much appreciated.
Jeanie McJunkins from Barbara Minderhout – Thank you for your resilience. I appreciate how quickly you were able to enter a secondary requisition to Pangea Systems after the first was inadvertently cancelled. You are a true team player. Way to go!
Cherie Moser from Casey Coleman – Thank you for your assistance in finding a solution to our TDCJ mainframe printing problems. You went above and beyond and I can’t thank you enough for your help.
Jack Ingram from Christopher Jenogan – Updating a room full of thin clients from 32bit to 64bit in a limited time window in preparation for the Jennie Sealy go live.
Gerald Puccetti. Nomination submitted by JoAnn Diaz in Medicine Cardiology. Statement: Very hard working and made my life easier. Team Player.
Kendall Tarrant. Nomination submitted by Gerald Puccetti in IS Operations. Statement: Thanks for taking the lead on updating all the Voalte phones for TDCJ and the Towers.
Jeanie McJunkins. Nomination submitted by Flo McMillian in WB Program. Statement: This GEM card is for your contribution in helping to teach our communication class. Although Mr. Baines was our actual teacher, our class seemed to be teachers as well. Like they say we must teach by example and it felt like we were all being taught to be the teaching example…… in which we were all learning from each other before the class was over. Therefore, it seems appropriate to send my classmates a GEM card for helping me to learn and develop more communication skills too. Thanks again!

Congratulations to the winners selected by the IS Employee Advisory group. These two winners, James Henley and Lynn Hacic, demonstrated the true meaning of Going the Extra Mile while at work. Thank you James and Lynn.
James C. Henley – From Emma Ramos: Thank you for going over and above and demonstrating true compassion. Emma submitted email from Ken Hall: He was at Lipton Tea working on a desktop support ticket for my team. He is well spoken and very cordial. In the end he was unable to assist us with the Crystal Report check printing issue, but I was extremely impressed with him. Take a look at the photo attached. While he was here, the fire alarm sounded in our building. The entire building evacuated. During the evacuation down 5 flights of stairs, he noticed one of my staff members, who he had never met, struggling to get down the stairs. This staff member has had recent hip surgery and is currently using a walker to get around. After watching my staff member struggle for one flight of stairs, he asked her if she would accept assistance. She was very grateful, and you can see the result in the photo. He slowly and carefully assisted my team member down four flights of stairs. I just want to express my gratitude for his assistance and to commend you for bringing individuals with this type of compassion and integrity to our institution.
Lynn Hacic – From Danna Eames McKeown: For going out of her way on an early Monday morning, to clean up the refrigerator in the CLC ste 80 area after multiple bottles of water and tea leaked inside and drenched everything existing in it. It required removing all bins, glass and food products in which everything had to be dried by hand with paper towels. She even kept a wonderful attitude regardless!
