At the annual holiday luncheon for employees today, the Middle Township Committee honored Suzanne Stocker as the 2015 Employee of the Year. The Employee of the Year is selected from the previous year’s Employees of the Month.
“I want to congratulate all our Employee of the Month Award winners for 2015,” Mayor Tim Donohue said. “Special recognition goes to our Employee of the Year, Suzanne Stocker. Suzanne stepped up to manage our Clerk’s Office while Municipal Clerk Kim Krauss was out on leave. She did an excellent job while also attaining her state certification as Municipal Clerk in 2015.”
Stocker, the Registrar of Vital Statistics and Deputy Municipal Clerk, began her career with Middle Township in September 2012. She was June’s Employee of the Month in recognition of her dedicated work in support of the Township’s 2015 Drumfish Tournament, which was the most successful one to date. Proceeds from the tournament support Middle Township Recreation Department programs.
“Even with her increased workload this year, Suzanne never missed a beat,” said Committeeman Michael Clark. “Her enthusiasm in coordinating the Drumfish Tournament certainly contributed to its success and her dedication and professionalism in the Clerk’s Office are great assets to the Township.”
The Middle Township Employee of the Month program was initiated by the Township Committee to honor employees who exemplify the Township’s commitment to better delivery of services and going the extra mile for residents. The program culminates with the Darius Graham Employee of the Year honor that is named after one of the Township’s most beloved employees in its history.
Nominations for the Employee of the Month Program are available inside Middle Township hall at three locations: Human Resources and Training Department, Administration Department, and on the bulletin board. Residents from the Township who have had a very positive interaction with any Middle Township employee may pick up the one-page nomination form and fill it out in the employee’s behalf. Each month a Township employee will be selected; the winning nominee will receive a certificate at a future Township Committee meeting along with a photograph posted on the bulletin board.
