Congratulations Deanna Davis:
The Employee Recognition Committee has selected Deanna Davis as the January 2104 Employee of the Month for the City of Augusta. Ms. Davis is a Design Engineer for the Augusta Utilities Department and has been employed with the City since May of 2012. She was nominated by Jeremy Hoffman.
Deanna Davis has only been with Augusta Utilities Engineering Division for slightly over a year and a half, but she has made a tremendous impact. Deanna has demonstrated her ability to draw on her vast knowledge of civil engineering to ask the difficult questions when managing large water and sewer projects. She has presented concepts for the use of new, longer life-span construction materials and methods that will allow the City to save thousands of dollars, both on the front end of projects and in long-term savings.
In addition, Ms. Davis has created considerable business improvements by providing tools and resources that allow the engineering division personnel to perform their duties more effectively in the office and in the field. Some of Deanna’s creative improvements include: ongoing job training testing and certification that allow support staff a broader knowledge base for project methods, implementation, construction and project management; a project tracking database for tracking a project’s life cycle; and digital imaging for project design and review, which provides an increased productivity avenue to review plans and share information electronically, eliminating bulk paper and accelerating project review times.
Deanna’s strive for excellence is not without unique challenges, including working with diverse groups and individuals and the differences of opinions that expectantly arise. Deanna has demonstrated her ability to work through challenges by listening, understanding and offering positive solutions. She not only does what needs to be done, she often takes it to a higher level.
The Employee Recognition Committee felt that based on this nomination and Deanna Davis’s service above-and-beyond, we would appreciate you joining us in recognizing her as the January 2014 Employee of the Month.
Congratulations-You Are Making A Difference In The City Of Augusta!
