Rolfs Sports Recreation Center Employee of the Month: Jon Faubert
I don’t think Jon ever has a bad day, whenever I see him, he has a smile on his face and looks to be on the brink of laughter. This is not always easy to do, especially with a 5:45 AM shift. Jon has the rare ability to brighten someone’s day with just a smile and a simple hello. Jon’s friendly demeanor and helpful attitude has definitely earned him the employee of the month award. Jon has settled in nicely and quickly gained respect from his fellow co-workers. RecSports is very lucky to have him with us, and I am grateful he will be with us for years to come. Thank you, Jon, for all your hard work.

Aquatics Employee of the Month: Bethany 'Bea' MIllman
Bethany is one of our newest employees. In the short time she has worked in our facilities, Bethany has provided a very positive environment for all. Her co-workers always report that “Bethany is always in a very good mood and eager to do anything she can to help. She makes working fun and treats everyone as though they were the president.' In addition to her co-workers, the patrons at the pool have also expressed the thoughtfulness and kind sentiments she has shown them.
- Sarah Ryckman, Aquatics Coordinator
I was very hesitant and nervous when I first decided to come to the pool…me, in a bathing suit, in public is a nightmare. The lifeguard that was on duty when I walked on the pool deck must have known. She quickly introduced herself and asked if I was familiar with the pool. When I told her this was my first time, she gave me a quick but thorough explanation of what I needed to know, told me that I was going to love it, and then said she was going to be within sight at all times in case I needed anything. I have been back almost every day since then, and it has changed my life (and my health). I wanted you to know that this probably would not have happened if it wasn’t for the kindness that she showed me.
