DGS August 2017 Employee of the Month!

August Employee of the Month

Congratulations to Garrett Knight, DGS’s August Employee of the Month. He has worked for the City of Baltimore since 1984. He has spent nearly a quarter of his career with the Department of General Services in its Fiscal and Strategic Initiatives office, Administration Division.  

During the last nine years of his 31 year tenure as a DGS employee, Garrett has served as a Purchasing Assistant handling the various invoices that come from agencies as well as processing internal work orders.

Garrett notes that he “… didn’t start as a Purchasing Assistant. I did strictly office support. I’ve always been a person who tries to tackle what I do, and put my best foot forward, inside and outside of the job. I’m a minister of the Gospel, having fun in prayer and song.”  

Garrett also enjoys performing and has several musical accomplishments including noteworthy performances at the White House, the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, and the Civic Opera House in Chicago.
