Lied Center employee wins KU’s Employee of the Year Award

On Wednesday, May 8, 2019 the University of Kansas held its annual Employee Recognition Ceremony.

The Lied Center’s custodial supervisor, Doug Rendall, was recognized as employee of the year. This prestigious award is given to two outstanding KU staffers each year. All candidates for the award had been previously nominated and recognized for employee of the month.

Co-workers describe Rendall as a cheerful, loyal and dedicated man with a “can do” attitude; one who can resolve any problem that arises and can prevent minor problems from becoming major ones. For some attendees, the Lied Center is their first experience at KU, and Rendall and his staff work very hard to make sure that the impression of the Lied Center and KU is a positive one.

Additionally, at the ceremony, the award for team of the year went to the KU Indigenous Cultures Festival and Powwow team. So much work hard work and rigorous planning goes into the festival and powwow. Congratulations to the First Nations Student Association and all the integral partner organizations for their amazing teamwork.
