“Pam has a wonderful smile and is one of the friendliest folks we have at NT,” remarked Northwest Tech President Ben Schears. “She’s always a pleasure to work with and works hard to put her best foot forward. She’s very deserving of the recognition from her co-workers!”
Fellow employees decide on the Employee of the Month award. “I was very surprised to be nominated Employee of the Month. It is really nice to know that what you do matters,” Pam commented. “My advice to new employees would be: no matter what your job is, you’re never alone. We are family. We all work together and there are always people to turn to.”
