Can-do attitude leads to employee of quarter honors



Marcus Davis, HVAC/plumbing supervisor, Facilities Services Physical Plant at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, earned Employee of the Quarter honors this term for his continuing service and adept management of plumbing emergencies since November 2004.

Davis also assists with campus rental property management and support. Debbie Lapioli, executive assistant, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance, nominated him for the award.

"Marcus is amazing," she said. "His great, can-do attitude and incredible customer service have benefited numerous individuals and departments across our campus community. It is a pleasure to work with Marcus and he is truly worthy of this recognition."

Davis is a master plumber and licensed plumbing inspector. Before coming to UCCS, he was a contractor in the private sector.

"I'm grateful for this honor. This is a fun place to work," Davis said. "I was here at UCCS as a transfer student back in 1984. I never would have imagined I'd be working here one day, but life's full of surprises."

Employee of the Quarter award recipients receive a certificate of recognition, a $100 stipend, three months' free campus parking and a day of administrative leave.
