Employee of the Month August

Congratulations to Michael Dawkins, CVM's August Employee of the Month!

In his 13 months here at the CVM, most everyone has encountered Michael either directly or indirectly - he and his team are the ones who answer the call when you dial 5-1082.  Before becoming Manager of Information Technology here at the CVM, Michael was IT Manager at MSU's Meridian campus for 10 years.  Although he says IT work itself is about the same everywhere, being here at the CVM has been a unique experience.  "Everything I've experienced here has been new in some shape or form, and a really good challenge," he said, adding that he has come to feel at home here at the CVM.  Michael and his wife Cynthia have four children, three boys and a girl who range in age from 13 to six.  When he's not saving the day technologically, he enjoys fishing, hunting, coaching youth sports, and spending time with his children.
