Congratulations to our August Employee of the Month Lacey!

Lacey deserves to be recognized as an Employee of the Month for the following reasons: I find her to be a genuine Team Player with a “We can attitude”. I have observed her interactions with the Director, her staff, peers, and patrons which I find remarkable. When given additional responsibilities, she accepts pleasantly, no matter how challenging assignment may be. She has displayed patience when working with both external and internal customers. I have never heard her say anything negative about an individual (no gossiping). She doesn’t complain Lacey has adapted to changes in a positive manner. Thank you Lacey for being such a positive asset to the ECPL.

~ Espie Kolodziej, Associate Director of Human Resources
