EMPLOYEE OF THE QUARTER - 2018 / 3rd Quarter
Greg Cooper is being honored as the Employee of the Quarter for the 3rd Quarter of 2018.
Greg is a consummate professional who is to be commended for his ability to solve problems and bring resolution to even the most difficult of circumstances. The Department received a voice mail from a very grateful elderly woman who was beside herself with gratitude for Greg's assistance. This woman indicated that the Greg's intervention resulted in improvements to the property that greatly increased her quality of life and sense of safety. The gratitude in her voice was one of a person who experienced a transformation from fear to security.
On another occasion over the quarter, Greg was able to resolve a water quality issue at an ADOH property that has been persisting for 10 years. A new well had to be drilled and Greg was able, through persistence and diplomacy, to obtain agreement from all parties for a more advanced scope of work, one that solves the problem instead of just postponing it.
Those of us who work with Greg frequently witness his problem solving and people skills which have benefited his Section, The Department and the State.
