As Personnel Manager for Building & Institutional Services, Alan Wilson maintains all personnel records, interviews perspective employees and assists in personnel training. The 19-year member of the University workforce often goes beyond his proscribed duties and work hours, however, to assist others in shop operations. And he is known for doing so consistently with a professional and courteous attitude. As the University's recycling coordinator, Wilson in a few short years has established an innovative program that has avoided the many mistakes and waste encountered at other universities and colleges. With creativity, perseverance and determination, Wilson first did research on recycling programs tried throughout the country, established a program that significantly increased participation through education efforts and also reduced disposal costs. He also designed fliers and literatures for students that would further increase campus involvement in a most worthy effort.
