Janice Dixon, coordinator in the Office of Registration and Enrollment at the Francis King Carey School of Law, didn’t expect to be the center of attention during the recent holiday party at the law school. But she was just that when Dean Phoebe A. Haddon, JD, LLM, made a surprise announcement: Dixon had been chosen as a University Employee of the Month.
40 Years at the Law School
Dixon, who has worked at the University for more than 40 years, was nominated for the Employee of the Month honor by students, faculty, and staff — including Nathan Robertson, JD, MSLS, the law school’s director of information policy and management — all of whom praised Dixon for her integrity, diligence, professionalism, dedication, and helpfulness, as well as her cheerful nature.
“I want you to know how deeply appreciative your colleagues are of the work that you do,” Haddon told Dixon as she gave the longtime employee a framed certificate, a letter from University President Jay A. Perman, MD, and $250.
A Great Place to Work
“It has been wonderful working at the law school for all these years,” Dixon says. “I’ve met and worked with so many faculty, students, and staff who make my job interesting and the School a great place to work. I’ve always tried to tackle the day-to-day challenges of the job with a positive attitude and greet everyone with a smile. After all, a friendly, welcoming office is where I’d want to visit or work. Wouldn’t you?”
