To celebrate Administrative Professionals Day, we decided to single out a local employee who goes above and beyond.

So we took nominations from people all over the valley and finally selected our winner: Rebecca Cikauskas. Here's what her boss, Jenifer Pelkey, had to say in nominating her:

Rebecca is the YVCC nursing program assistant. She is in charge of so many aspects of the nursing department. She keeps the student files up to date, knows the students by name, keeps the computers running, and all around keeps the department running smoothly! We all appreciate all she does and I believe she deserves to win!

We agree! That's why we gave Rebecca a beautiful bouquet from John Gasperetti’s Floral Design, PLUS a $50 gift certificate for Gasperetti’s Restaurant.

Congratulations, Rebecca! We appreciate all the work that you -- and so many other administrative professionals -- do for our work places every day!
