RSC staple wins CSA award
The Classified Staff Achievement Award is a prize given to a Rose State College employee that goes above and beyond their job duties. The winner of the CSA award receives an honorable mention at the September CSA meeting and $1,000 in cash.
This year’s winner is Tammy Martin who works in the Payroll office. Martin has worked at RSC for24 years, “I’ve worked in several different places on campus, but I’ve been in payroll for over ten years,” Martin said, “I love [my job]. I’ve got the best boss and the best area.”
There are many aspects that the CSA award committee looks at when selecting the award winner, but one of the major areas is participation on campus and off.
“I don’t like to just come to work and go home. I try to do other things too. I’ve been in charge of the children’s tent at Global Oklahoma for about ten years. I’ve always had a ‘Relay For Life’ team and organized the ‘Relay For Life’ team on campus,” Martin said,
“I [also] help with the ‘Casual for Kids’, which is a child abuse prevention event. I just like to get involved with different things on campus. I think it’s very important and gives you a sense of well-being. And then off campus too; I do a lot with the child abuse prevention and the Mid-Del Youth and Family Center.”
Martin found receiving the award both astonishing and flattering.
“I was very surprised, it was a wonderful honor and there are so many [who are] deserving. I was just very, very surprised,” Martin said.
