Ted Pruitt Jr., assistant director of maintenance with Maverick Village at UNO, takes his job seriously and has a quick turn-around time for maintenance calls, including emergencies. Colleagues say his ability to work well with units across campus enhances his effectiveness. As a result, Ted was named “Employee of the Month” for March.
Ted does a great job responding to issues and work orders for the students. He has worked hard to build strong relationships with other departments at UNO and understands the value of having those relationships as part of a team environment.
In March of 2001, Ted joined UNO as a facility operator I. He then served as a facility operator II before being promoted to his current post last July.
Ted is responsible for organizing the maintenance shop and storage areas, meeting with contractors to resolve warranty issues, assigning duties and checking work for community service workers, and collaborating with staff members to improve procedures, methods and standards. He enjoys the opportunities and flexibility his position provides.
Please join me in thanking Ted for his dedication to the University of Nebraska at Omaha and Maverick Village.
