Please join us in congratulating our USPS Employee of the Month for the month of July, Donna Lucas! Donna works in Psychology as an Administrative Assistant Donna is an Administrative Assistant for the Department of Psychology. She is considered by her supervisors as an extremely hard-working employee and that her commitment to co-workers, her department and the University of Central Florida as a whole is unparalleled. “Whenever necessary she works (late), never complains and shows a devotion to the program that (they) have never observed in other individuals in her position in the last five years. Her dedication and work ethic exemplifies the UCF creed and she works this way because she believes in what she does – not because she expects special recognition.” From the time she began working at UCF Donna has been considered a consummate professional who has mastered her ever-expanding role and increased duties within the department. “Ms. Lucas does not just DO her job, she EXCELS at it” noted one of her supervisors. This commitment to excellence has led her to being promoted twice since she began working in Psychology May of 2009. The name Donna Lucas is synonymous with excellence in her department and the recognition of her achievements is well warranted. “She demonstrates integrity, commitment, teamwork and loyalty to the program and department (and) exemplifies the best of UCF. The nominator continued, “I do not use superlatives lightly but I cannot think of anyone with whom I work (with) who is more deserving of this award. By her actions, she makes me and all of those around her better faculty, colleagues and teachers.”

In addition to the Fairwinds gift card, lunch & introduction to UCF’s Board of Trustees, marquee announcement, UCF apparel, goody bag, certificate and surprise presentation, Donna is also now eligible for the USPS Employee of the Year award, which is announced annually at the Employee Awards Program. One of the 12 USPS Employees of Month will be named Employee of the Year & will receive a $2,500 check.
