Media Technologist at the University of South Florida College of Nursing, Jason Link, recently received the 2013 USF Quiet Quality Award for his continuous diligence, great work performance, professionalism, and positive attitude at work.
USF College of Nursing Instructor, Debra A. Gottel, MSN, MHS, RN, nominated Link. In a letter she sent to the USF Staff Senate, said Link is a team player, cooperative, helpful, friendly, and that his work is exemplary.
“Link will work his hardest to get the job done completely and accurately,” said Gottel in the letter. “Not only is he willing to be helpful, but he is competent with his helpfulness. During our work with developing the lab, I never had to check on his follow-up, he initiated the search for equipment, the downloading and charging of the equipment.”
Link received a framed Award Certificate for the recognition, a name announcement in the Quiet Quality website, a picture displayed on the USF “Wall of Fame” in the USF Administration Building Breezeway, and an invitation to the official award ceremony hosted by USF Staff Senate in June, 2013.USF Nursing Media Technologist, Jason Link
