Team Member of the Year

I would like to nominate Victoria Hellman for BOEC's Outstanding Team Member award.  Victoria is the driving force behind so many behind-the-scenes things here at BOEC.  Her regular job duties require her to work closely with supervisors to create detailed records and schedules, along with many other things that go unnoticed and/or unrecognized.  She has been a member and secretary of the Health & Safety Committee for over 5 years.  During this time, she attends each meeting, takes detailed notes, and has volunteered to take on many tasks that are outside her regular scope of duty in order to make BOEC a better place to work.  From chairs cataloging/marking to taking ergonomics classes so she can fit people for those chairs, Victoria cares about her co-workers.  She always has a smile on her face, a kind word on her lips, and is welcoming to new employees, as I've personally seen her making it a point to introduce herself to the trainees.  Her charitable work outside of the walls of BOEC occurs often and with the same big heart she displays here.
