Coleen Reeves

Coleen Reeves is a buildings and grounds maintenance employee for the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. In her 19 years at athletics, Reeves has demonstrated her professional skills and performed tasks at an exceptional level.

Colleagues note that she "exemplifies service with a smile," and "never hesitates to go beyond the call, putting in her own personal hours or resources to get the job done."

Reeves has been known to purchase cleaning products with her own money because they are less offensive to her co-workers working in enclosed office spaces.

She is recognized for taking initiative to get things done, doing so with a cheerful attitude, and for being a dedicated, hard-working team player.
