About once a month our campus safety services unit recognizes an employee who makes a contribution to improve the culture of safety at UC Davis. Last month that award was bestowed upon our own GATEways Horticulturist Stacey Parker!

Here’s an excerpt from Stacey’s nomination package.

“Stacey is the safety coordinator for the [UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden]. This is a thankless job that requires coordination, dedication, and extreme patience in the pursuit of safety training compliance. Others would cringe at having to rally a group of employees to read safety brochures and participate in staff trainings; Stacey jumps in headfirst and leads our group with a combination of perseverance and enthusiasm. She manages to make the process seem interesting and ultimately valuable. With Stacey at the helm, I look forward to our monthly trainings.”

We are so proud of all the work Stacey does! When you see her, please congratulate and thank her for keeping our our volunteers and our staff safe!
