The Team Player Award recognizes an individual or group who works exceptionally well with others, both within the department and throughout the FIU community. This individual or group possesses a willingness to collaborate and tends to be more concerned about getting the job accomplished rather than receiving the credit
The recipient of the Team Player Award is Steven James
To be considered a great team player a person must be willing to give of their time and energy to help others succeed. This clearly describes how Steven works on a daily basis. He has taken on more responsibility in the previous year and yet has still bent over backwards to help anyone on his team or anywhere else whenever needed. He consistently works above and beyond. If someone comes to him for help at 5:00 p.m. he will always help them out as long as needed, with a charm and efficiency that can win over anyone.
The following quote from his nominator sums up Steven’s work style very well. It is with great pride that I nominate Steven James for the Team Player award because he embodies what it means to be part of a team.
