World class employees recognized

September 22, 2005

Valdosta - If there was an instruction manual for being a model employee, these workers could write the book. "A good worker always comes in on time with a good, positive attitude about work," said Marcella Stewart.

"They have dependability, honesty, and integrity," said Victoria Copeland.

Marcella Stewart, Victoria Copeland, and Kevin Stephenson know the tricks of the trade when it comes to good work ethics. That's why they were selected as the Chamber of Commerce's 2005 World Class Employees. "We're looking for skill as well as character, things like coming to work on time, have a good attitude," said Barry Belanger, Committee Chairman.

The competition spotlights the cream of the crop in Lowndes County's workforce. Whether its housekeeping at the Holiday Inn, answering customer service calls at Convergy's, or supervising safety at Packaging Corporation of America, these workers go above and beyond the normal work routine without even trying. "I just act like myself, just normal, coming in smiling and trying to keep a smile on others' faces," said Stewart.

In addition to their prestigious new title, each winner also received a check for $1,000. But even though the money is a nice bonus, they say its not the most important reward. "The best part is the idea that my co-workers feel that way about me," said Stewart.

And knowing the rest of Lowndes County's workforce will now look to them as a true example of a world class employee.
