The Spring 2010 Beth Maloan Outstanding UT Martin Student Employee Award recently was presented to Brian Middleton, a UT Martin Department of Public Safety employee. Middleton is a criminal justice major and has been employed for two years.
Among his many tasks, Middleton, of Hohenwald, works as a dispatcher and formerly with building security.
He is responsible for monitoring security cameras, answering telephones, keeping detailed computer logs of all police activities on campus, giving information and event times to campus visitors, issuing temporary parking passes and monitoring fire alarm panels.
Working with building security, Middleton secured all the academic buildings at the end of the day.
According to his supervisor, Chad Worley, “Brian is an outstanding employee. He constantly strives to exceed the expectations of our department. He can be relied on to complete any task set before him, completely and in a timely fashion. He does his job with unparalleled professionalism. He knows his job and performs it to the best of his ability.”
This award, given every fall and spring semester, is a memorial for Beth Maloan, longtime UT Martin director of budgeting and payroll, who during her years of service, was a strong advocate for student employment.
Maloan had a vision that more positions would be developed on campus that would challenge students and make them significant contributors to the university’s mission.
Recipients of this award exemplify a strong work ethic and commitment to the university, and they receive a $1,000 cash award, an engraved plaque and a nameplate on the perpetual plaque in a place of honor in the Boling University Center.
Contributions to this scholarship award may be made through payroll deduction by employees of UT Martin or by sending a contribution to the Office of Development at UT Martin.
