Michael "Mickey" Waxman

Notable: Waxman routinely gives his time and expertise to help solve difficulties so that faculty and staff can continue their work. He has spent hours to "debug" computers infected by a virus.

Recent feat(s): Among Waxman’s most avid admirers are members of the Endacott Society, the KU organization for retired faculty and staff. He has given talks to the society’s computer group, most recently on "Zombies, Web Bugs, Trolls, Works and Other Beasts of the Internet."

February classified employee of the month:
Lanora Hundt

Started at KU: Hundt has been a member of the Facilities Operations staff for 22 years.

Current title: She is a custodial supervisor with primary responsibility for Twente Hall.

What that means: Hundt does everything from scrubbing and waxing the floors, cleaning bathrooms and shampooing rugs in individual offices to washing windows, making sure the drinking fountains are spotless and supervising staff who work in neighboring buildings. Over the past several years, extensive renovation work has generated a fair amount of noise, dirt and inconvenience.

Lanora Hundt

Notable: Hundt takes care to ensure that office occupaants are not inconvenienced. She also takes care of a flowerbed behind Twente Hall and keeps it flowering from spring through fall.

Recent feat(s): Recently a staff member lost a diamond from a ring that had belonged to her mother. Ten days later, the staff member found a note on her desk with the diamond taped to it. Hundt had not given up the search, and she had discovered the diamond near the coat rack while dust mopping.
