Dan Clark has been with the University of Nebraska at Kearney as a Facilities Operator for the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conidition Division of the Facilities Department since August 1991.
Through his work in the HVAC area of Facilities, Dan is directly involved in welding repairs on boilers and chillers, and various departmental repairs. An extremely fine metal fabricator, Dan enthusiastically accepts special projects in addition to his regular duties. Examples of his work include the new players arch and the gates at the east ticket booth at Foster Field. The ADA ramp rails at both the Student Life building and Stout Hall, the pedestrian directional fences at Randall Hall, West Center and the Library, and the step rails at Foster Field and Ludden Hall bear witness to his craftsmanship on behalf of the university community.
Dan projects a willing teamwork attitude in his work with various campus departments to plan and construct a variety of special items. As additional projects are often added to his regular workload, Dan arrives at his work site early and often stays late into the night to complete projects by their deadline. Dan works cooperatively with a broad range of people in the HVAC area to supply the best possible HVAC services to faculty, staff and students. Dan always remains open to suggestions and seeks advice from supervisors as needed.
Dan Clark completes all projects with a very high level of quality. He refuses to accept work that does not meet his exacting standards. His design and building skills allow him to produce products that are far superior to those the university might purchase. Thus, the university realizes considerable savings from his creative abilities.
Because of his superior skills, his enthusiasm for his job, and his cost-saving innovations, the University of Nebraska at Kearney is pleased to name Dan Clark as Employee of the Month for September 1999.
