2004 employees of the year honored

Georgia Hunter, custodial specialist, and Ngondi Kamatuka, director of the School of Education’s Educational Opportunity Programs, were named 2004 employees of the year at the 30th annual Employee Recognition Ceremony on April 28.

Employees of the year are selected from 24 candidates who have won employee of the month recognition during the preceding year.

Hunter, who was named classified employee of the month in August 2003, joined the Facilities Operations housekeeping staff as a custodial worker in 1985 and now serves as the sole custodian for Stauffer-Flint Hall, with responsibilities that until about three years ago were shared by two staff members.

Kamatuka, who earned the unclassified employee of the month title in October 2003, came to KU in 1981 as a graduate student and earned master’s and doctoral degrees in higher education. In 1987, he accepted a position as an academic services coordinator for the School of Education’s Upward Bound program, and today he directs projects that provide opportunities for economically and educationally disadvantaged people.
