Dotseth’s nomination stated: "Eric shows his commitment to the university daily by his constant politeness and dedication. Eric definitely is a standout among his peers. (He) is proactive at finding solutions to unusual situations. He smiles and thanks people -- both students and staff. Eric has a great attitude. I am very impressed with how he approaches his work. He doesn't complain. He just does it. Eric is a caring person and will even correct people in a very kind-hearted manner if something inappropriate is spoken. His family at home, and his family at UW-Stout, can stand proud of his many contributions to the campus and society."

Dotseth said he appreciated the award. “I pride myself on providing the best work I can do for my department and enjoy helping our students and staff in any way I can,” he said. “Facilities staff, and our contributions to the campus environment, are continuously operating in the background of the UW-Stout experience. It is very nice to be brought to the forefront and receive the recognition for our outstanding work.”

Each winner receives a certificate of recognition, a UW-Stout travel mug and a UW-Stout blanket.
