Greg Crowley | August 2010
Just mention his name, and you will hear comments like, “Oh, he’s so nice,” or “He’s so helpful,” and that explains why Greg Crowley was named the WTAMU Staff Council 2010 Employee of the Year.
Crowley, microsystems analyst in Information Technology, was one of 12 WTAMU employees recognized during 2010 as a Staff Council Employee of the Month. The 12 monthly honorees are eligible for Employee of the Year honors and following a campuswide vote, Crowley was named the 2010 winner at a special reception July 26. His letter of nomination, in part, read, “I so appreciated Greg’s patience, kindness and persistence in solving my computer problem. Not only did he go the extra mile, he went hundreds of extra miles.”
Going the extra mile is just what Crowley does. He’s made friends across campus with his quick smile, helpful nature and determination to solve computer problems, both large and small. If he can’t figure out the problem, he’ll research the issue until he finds the right answer. And that kind of help is priceless to WTAMU employees who rely on computers to get work done.
Crowley joined the IT staff in June 2007 as a student technician. He graduated from WTAMU in December 2009 with a B.B.A. in computer information systems. Crowley, an Amarillo native, is a self proclaimed night owl who enjoys reading, watching television and hanging out with friends. He’s also been known to toss a flying disc or two in a game of Frisbee disc golf.
When asked what he likes best about his job at the University, Crowley replied, “helping people.”
And that is why WTAMU salutes Greg Crowley as the 2010 Employee of the Year.
