the Back-Page Space
about using the back page as an "IC Employee Recognition"
page? It would be a nice way to show appreciation to those who may
not necessarily be discovering the cure for cancer but who make
the day a little brighter by kind words or deedssomeone on
staff or who services a building or IC offices.
Just a thought.
suggestion for the back page of the Catalyst: You often feature
PhDs or top people in their field in issues (which is good), but
what about the average employee who makes a significant contribution
to their job? Perhaps you could ask for nominations from division
heads, select a candidate, and run a short piece on the person and
their idea or performance that rated special mention.
Veterinary Associate, NCI
Catalyst would be pleased from
time to time to publish back-page photos and a few words about individuals
selected for such recognition. Please send us your nominations!ed.
