Donnie Barzar was honored with the university’s “Our Heroes” Award on Dec. 9. The award, sponsored by the Professional Faculty Leadership Association, recognizes OSU colleagues or groups for excellence in their work and outstanding service to others.
Barzar is transporter for Printing and Mailing Services. He was recognized for his excellent customer service and for providing a positive image of Printing and Mailing around campus.
According to his nominators, he always follows up on questions or concerns expressed by customers, and makes sure to find the answer to their questions, or tracks down someone who can provide assistance.
A customer contacted his supervisor, Cheryl Lyons, to give Barzar praise. “I’m not sure I’ve met someone with a deeper commitment to positivity. He has adopted that as a personal mantra, and lives it.”
Barzar received a certificate and a Christmas cactus from a group of PFLA members to honor his outstanding work.
