Mia Hixon 2020 Blind Employee of the Year

If a positive attitude, a productive worker and an extremely friendly disposition are benchmarks for qualifying as LIB’s Blind Employee of the Year, then this employee deserves that honor.

Since having begun work at LIB, this employee said I will be at work every day and would accept any challenge. Well, that declaration has been true every time she has been asked to help out in other departments. As a matter of fact, we just take it for granted she’ll pitch in wherever she is needed.

This employee approaches any task with an open mind and motivation and like all our blind and sight impaired employees this person does the best that they can do.

Everyone within the sound of my voice has had to deal with challenges that test our inner strength, and determination but this employee’s strong family unit and faith have pulled her through life and here she is, a success.

We appreciate this employee’s dedication and their commitment to excellence.

You all may have an idea who our winner is but I will give you a hint that will confirm who it is, after all we all know her by her unique, somewhat vocal and joyous sounding laugh.

Congratulations Mia Hixon.

Trevor Morrison 2020 Sighted Employee of the Year

​We have picked a loyal, hard-working, dedicated and talented employee as our sighted employee of the year.

Ever since joining LIB, this person has been kind and friendly to all those whom they work with. Not because this person must be that way but because this person is that way.

This employee has all the right instincts. He sticks to the rules at LIB and doesn’t believe in taking shortcuts. This employee is very well organized and gets the job done efficiently. He’s always positive and leaves a positive impression on his coworkers. Above all else he has the right temperament in his job and displays a professional attitude with all the people that he interacts with here at LIB.

This employee helps us in our commercial screen print and USGS commercial departments. He helps receive and store raw materials in the warehouse. He has helped pack mail bags and swabs. He has even filled in our military embroidery department. Oh, did I happen to mention that his primary job is that he serves as LIB’s cutting operator? So, is it any wonder that we have all come to admire him not only for what he gives at LIB but how much he enjoys his job.

I suppose by now we all know who this outstanding person is:

Trevor Morrison, congratulations on being named LIB’s 2020 Sighted Employee of the Year.
