The 2012 Employee of the Year is known for her willingness to always help others and to pitch-in in ways that are too numerous to count. It is a great honor to recognize Chau Curfman as our 2012 Employee of the Year. She is being recognized for her professionalism, organizational skills, and her teamwork attitude.
Chau has almost single handedly overseen, coordinated, and undertaken the movement of hundreds of thousands of volumes of library materials from the off-site warehouse to new placements throughout the library. The movement of these library materials involved physically demanding work that lasted well over a year. Chau has done this very well, and always with a pleasant disposition and great camaraderie.
In a time of transition for both the law school and the library, Chau has taken on innumerable new responsibilities and has done so cheerfully and with precision. One of her nominations describes her as “truly being a jack of all trades here at the library, interacting with students, faculty, foreign scholars, and visitors of all stripes. She is a reminder of the library’s role in supporting the law school’s mission, and reminder that so much of the work that makes the law school a world-class institution happens behind the scenes and at all hours of the day and night.”
Chau’s commitment and dedication are crucial to the success of the Library and the entire Law School community. Please join me in congratulating Chau Curfman as our 2011-12 Employee of the Year!
