Long time administrative assistant for the Head Start preschool program, Dee Wilson, who keeps the department operations flowing uninterrupted, has been named Employee of the Month.
Dee joined MEO in January 2005 after working in the health care field. She was nominated for the honor by Head Start co-worker Evelyne Dereas.
Dee exemplifies MEO’s core values of teamwork, integrity, personal excellence, empathy, creativity and flexibility, Evelyne wrote in her nomination.
“This person is always going out and beyond her way, making sure everyone is on the same page/level by constantly keeping everyone in check with reminders, notices, etc,” said Evelyne.
Dee’s role makes her the first person clients see when they walk into the office. She has a “big heart and has worked with empathy” in receiving clients and is “not quick to judge,” said Evelyne.
For being named Employee of the Month for February, Dee earned a $150 check and an extra vacation day. Evelyne received $50 as the nominator.
Dee was honored at MEO’s monthly staff meeting, held via Zoom, on March 24.
