True Blue Gem of the Week


Bobbi SwansonBobbi Swanson

WHO SHE IS: Bobbi has been the Print Shop Coordinator at BCU since 1989.

WHY SHE WAS NOMINATED:

One colleague says, "What do I love about Bobbi - everything! I would give her my kidney.   Bobbi gives more than 100% every single day and has a deep love and commitment for Briar Cliff. She is very knowledgeable in her field and has a fast turn-around time. She takes in jobs with the deadline of "yesterday" without complaints and a smile on her face. Bobbi is more than a coworker, she is a Briar Cliff friend."

Another colleague says, "Bobbi works for just about everyone on campus. She is always willing to go the extra mile to get our printing jobs completed on time, even though we often take our requests to her "at the last minute." She does her work with a smile and no complaining. She strives to produce the best product possible with the equipment that she has available. She is also willing to help others in any way that she can. Bobbi is probably the textbook definition of the "unsung hero behind the scenes" employee - but consider all the pieces she produces and all those that see her work without realizing her efforts and labor. It's not just the big jobs that she completes, it is all the little things that Bobbi does to enhance the finished product for all of us. I am nominating Bobbi, because quite frankly, I don't know what we would do without her..."

Congratulations to Bobbi Swanson, our True Blue Gem of the Week for April 10!
