Genesee Community College is pleased to announce that Raymond J. Strzelecki, a native of Batavia, New York, received the annual President's Distinguished Service Award. As he approaches his thirteen-year anniversary of working in the College's maintenance department, Strzelecki has earned this honor after many years of dedicated service. Strzelecki joined the College staff in September, 1991 as a Building Maintenance Mechanic and was promoted to Building Maintenance Supervisor in December, 2002. He has performed his duties in an outstanding, commendable manner, frequently found going above and beyond what is expected with an ever-present smile and a "can-do" attitude. His expertise and knowledge of Genesee's mechanical systems were instrumental during the process of completing the new Conable Technology Building in time for the important dedication ceremony.
In addition, Strzelecki's organizational skills and his willingness to get along with others has made an invaluable contribution to the College for many years. He sets an exemplary example with his strong work ethic and dedication that not only helps maintain Genesee Community College's immaculate facilities, but it also helps retain the College's reputation as a friendly and well-run institution. With his problem-solving skills and reliability, his even-tempered approach to issues, and a desire to support his co-workers and the College in the best possible way, he is a valuable member of Genesee's staff.
"I have enjoyed my thirteen years of service to Genesee Community College, and look forward to continuing to make the College a smooth-running operation," Strzelecki said. With his wife, Celeste and their family, Strzelecki lives in Batavia. Fine carpentry and woodworking is his hobby. Having just refinished end tables, he is currently working on their kitchen and his next project is a designing, building and finishing a buffet for the family dining room.
