Employee Recognition



Craig Scott

Paws for Thanks Quarterly Drawing Winner

Craig received a Paws for Thanks nomination for going above and beyond his normal job duties in the Department of Public Safety. Craig is this quarter's Paws for Thanks winner for the following reasons:

Public Safety has taken over the task of issuing all IDs for Ohio Northern. At new student orientation in June, officers took photos of all 600+ new students. The new cards were printed, but it was discovered that they did not work. It seemed as if new cards would need to be ordered to replace what were thought to be defective ones.

Craig took it upon himself to try to figure out the issue. He worked diligently to fix the problem, which turned out to be merely an encoding error. As a result, new cards did not need to be ordered, which saved the University between $4,000 and $5,000.

This is not an isolated incident. Craig always puts the University first. Another example of his dedication would be setting up the new RMS software program for Public Safety. He took the initial template and expanded it to be user-friendly for the officers, which helped them become more comfortable and accurate with documenting their activities. This helps improve data collection for the Clery reporting that had been previously collected manually.

These are but a two of the many ways Craig provides exemplary service to the University community on a daily basis. He deserves a Paws for Thanks!
