All Stars: August 2018

Aug All Star 2018

There were two teams recognized as All Stars for August 2018.

Congratulations to the Facilities Maintenance Plumbing team: Aaron Winston, Gianfranco Castellano, Winston Emmanuel, Sammie McNeal, and supervisor John Hammock for their recognition as DGS All Stars. The team installed new water pipes in the Hollywood Diner, in preparation for the diner’s reopening as the central downtown post for our security team. A tough job, the team had to crawl under the building to perform repairs to pipes and also install water coolers in extreme summer heat. They completed the assignment in a timely manner making them true All Stars!

Additionally, hats off to the DGS Business Process Improvement Office (BPIO) for receiving an All Star Award. Babila Lima, Varghese Paranilam and Melanie Shimano have implemented Code for the City, a summer-long computer coding program. BPIO and work-study student Ana Basoco are coding a program that takes data from Archibus, compiles statistical tweets, in the form of a graph or a percentage and posts it directly to Twitter. BPIO’s technological assertiveness provides DGS with unique applications as it strengthens efficiency. Congrats to all!
