Tami Cox

May 5, 2015 –The first annual Applause Employee of the Year Award was announced May 4 at the Amarillo ISD Service Recognition Banquet. Recipient Tami Cox, Caprock High School career planning clerk, received some of the most nominations throughout the school year for striving to provide outstanding customer service in all she does. The Applause Award provides community members and fellow employees the opportunity to praise the customer service provided by district employees through nomination cards and online forms.

“Tami has come to Caprock and taken the challenges by storm. She is eager to learn and help our students be successful beyond high school. We would not have been able to attain 100 percent of our students applying to college without Tami,” said the nomination letter from a co-worker.

A student wrote in another nomination letter for Cox, “She always has a great attitude, is involved with all the students, and she has helped us prepare for the future. She has helped me with decisions nobody else could help me with.”

Applause Employee of the Year Finalists:
                                                                                          

  • Quinn Blount, PC Technician at Oak Dale Elementary School
  • Melanie Jones, Associate Principal at Bowie Middle School
  • Chris Miller, PC Technician at Wolflin Elementary School


Nearly one thousand Applause Awards have been given to employees of AISD since its inception last fall.

“Customer service is one of four core values in AISD. Just like in the business world, it is important for us to do all we can to meet the needs of our customers, especially our students, parents and taxpayers. The Applause Award is a great way for the community to help us recognize and thank our employees for giving the best service they can every day to every customer they come into contact with,” Director of Community Relations Susan Hoyl said.

The Applause Award expands efforts to recognize exemplary actions of district employees by making available nomination cards at each school and the Education Support Center, as well as an online form available on the homepage of the district website. Anyone can nominate an AISD employee for an Applause Award.
