Marc Gordon began working at UNO on the Criss Library renovation project five-years ago, but with construction finished, he has stayed on as building services manager for the facility. Gordon is responsible for maintaining everything on the inside of the Criss Library and he describes his job as "never being the same day twice." "I enjoy seeing a lot of interesting people with diverse personalities and being able to watch how everybody works together," he said. "If there's an issue in the building everyone comes together to get the issue straightened out. It's a 'patron first facility' and a very enjoyable place to work."
In nominating Gordon for the monthly award, one person said, "Marc always makes himself available to patrons and staff no matter what time it is. He is involved in so many projects on campus including the digital signage committee and taking a year-long CPM course ... all while still doing his Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. job. If he gets a phone call at home and needs to come in he will do so. He is such a great manager and will always help anyone to the best of his ability." Gordon will receive a certificate and check from Chancellor John Christensen and he will be honored at an upcoming meeting of the Board of Regents.
