Roger Hepokoski has received the University Staff Employee Appreciation Award for November at University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Hepokoski, of Elk Mound, is a building maintenance mechanic in Facilities Management. He has worked at UW-Stout for seven years.
Hepokoski’s nomination said: “Roger shows his commitment to the university by working hard each and every day he comes into work to care for and maintain the two facilities he is assigned to, Merle M. Price Commons and North Point Dining and Fitness. Roger is persistent in the pursuit of fixing, replacing and troubleshooting each work order to come across his desk. Roger has a great attitude with us as customers. If he has a question on a work order, he gives a call. When you see him, he is usually walking briskly to his next task but always says hello. I know when I submit a work order, Roger will take care of it. Roger is very deserving of this award.”
Interim Chancellor Patrick Guilfoile presents each winner with a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout travel mug and a UW-Stout blanket.
Students, faculty and staff may nominate a university staff member who demonstrates a commitment to excellence and the university community.
The award, in its 14th year, was established by the Chancellor’s Office and is co-sponsored by the University Staff Senate.
