MORRILL RECEIVES MENDOCINO COLLEGE
CLASSIFIED STAFF AWARD
Ukiah, CA – Mendocino College Maintenance Technician Kevin Morrill was selected in January as recipient of the quarterly award for Classified Staff.
“I get up in the morning and look forward to going to work. Mendocino College is the best place I’ve ever worked” he said.
Morrill has been at Mendocino College since August of 1984. After working at Upper Lake High School, just down the road from where he and his wife live and raised their kids, Kevin saw an opportunity to grow with a new college. “I’ve seen lots of changes here in 26 years. People have come and gone and I’ve enjoyed working with all of them.” Periodically he has helped the Mendocino College Eagles coaching staff with baseball and football. Over the years he’s been an assistant wrestling, football and baseball coach for the Cougars at Upper Lake High and he’s still an NCAA registered baseball umpire. Kevin commented that “My kudos come from helping people find solutions.”
According to College President Kathy Lehner, “There is no other person currently employed by Mendocino College who knows the secret workings and hidden mechanisms of our facilities as well as Kevin does.” His Supervisor, Steve Oliveria, stated that “On a daily basis Kevin shows immense concern for the campus and the people who work here. We all lean on him for advice because of his storehouse of knowledge.”
The Mendocino College Foundation has allocated $2,000 annually for the classified staff recognition program. One recipient is selected each quarter by a committee that includes the Mendocino College Superintendent/President, two vice-presidents and the Director of Human Resources. The selection is based on supervisor nominations, contributions to the college and longevity.
The winner has the opportunity to choose a college program to receive $500 which can be used by that program in support of the college’s strategic goals.
