NUD Staff Earn Honors In Leadership Course

January 4, 2017

We are proud to announce that four members of Northshore Utility District’s operations staff recently completed an intensive leadership course through the Dale Carnegie Institute, winning several awards throughout the program.

Brian Gumke, Water Quality and Safety Officer, earned the “Highest Achievement Award” for his outstanding performance throughout the course; Senior Utility Worker Rick Alne was awarded the “Break-Out Award”; and Utility Worker John Herndon obtained the “Outstanding Performance” award.

We are very proud to celebrate both their achievements – all earned during their own time – and our entire team’s commitment to professional growth and excellence.  To date, NUD has graduated eight staff through this leadership course.

Proud of all our team and their hard-earned accomplishment: course grads above (l-r) Brian Gumke, John Herndon, Lucas McCabe, and Rick Alne. Other 2016 grads below (l-r): Utility Supervisor Jamie Lamb, Utility Leads Willie Anderson and Nate Morgan, and Fleet/Facilities Supervisor Michael Acheson.
