When employees strive to do more than their everyday job we are providing an atmosphere of excellence for our students. This quarterly Staff reward and recognition program is designed to improve Schreiner's operations and services. The purpose is to motivate employees to increase productivity and creativity by rewarding those whose job performance and adopted ideas benefit the University and are substantially above the normal job requirements and performance standards.

Congratulations to Wade Morgan are most recent PAT recipient.  Here are a few of the comments from the PAT Award nominations regarding Wade and his service to Schreiner University.:  

ABOVE AND BEYOND NORMAL DUTIES
I don't know of any employee or coach who puts in time like Wade.  During the tournament we hosted on February 6th and 7th, he worked from 6:30am to 10:30pm on Friday and was back from 6:30am to 5:00pm on Saturday.  That is not a typical work weekend!  Also the tournament ran beautifully; he did a great job as tournament director.    Wade also puts in time one-on-one with his athletes.  He gives them private lessons, not only to help build their game, but to help build their confidence and self-worth as a person.  His athletes mean everything to him.    Maybe most important, Wade does a terrific job recruiting. He is calling, emailing, and texting recruits all the time. When he schedules them for a campus visit, he makes it his responsibility to treat the recruit and his family like first class.  He goes and meets them at Admissions, takes them to lunch in the diner (with Wade paying for his own meal), and makes sure the recruit leaves knowing Schreiner is a top notch school!

PROVIDES OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE
Wade is the fall sports event manager. He takes on a lot responsibility to run volleyball and soccer games- while he is in season with tennis!  The volleyball and soccer coaches do not make it easy, they expect things to run smoothly, and Wade somehow makes it work every time!    I already mentioned how important Wade is in bringing tennis recruits on campus, and building the tennis team.  His impact would truly be felt on the student population if he was not here.    Wade cares deeply for his student athletes; he wants to see them succeed on and off the court.  I know it is cliché, but he really does.  I believe he may have written more letters of recommendation for kids than their professors.  They come to him first, and he delivers!

PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE OF HOW THIS STAFF MEMBER HAS BUILT MORALE AND SHOWN WILLINGNESS TO WORK AS A TEAM.
Being event manager, Wade has to commit time and effort into making sure the volleyball and soccer coaches can focus on their games, and not the sound equipment, ball kids, line judges, locker rooms being open, etc.  He takes time away from his weekends when he doesn't already have tennis going on to be there for the other coaches and come through.

PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE OF HOW THIS STAFF MEMBER HAS DISPLAYED ETHICAL BEHAVIOR (INTEGRITY, FAIRNESS, RESPONSIBILITY, GOOD MANAGEMENT).

We made some extra money off our tournament that we hosted, and instead of requesting a well-deserved bonus for his countless hours spent preparing for and running the tournament, he deposited the profit into the tennis account to help with extra shoes and travel money for the team this year.  It is all about team with Wade.
