For years he’s been the man behind the camera who has photographed dozens of Marshall Employee of the Month presentation ceremonies. Now it’s Rick Haye’s turn in front of the camera as he has been named the November 2010 Marshall University Employee of the Month, according to Michelle Brown Douglas, chair of the Employee of the Month Committee.
Employed since November 1978, he
was nominated by Betty Cook in the College of Liberal Arts.
In her nomination she wrote about meeting with Haye and looking over some of his photos she planned to purchase. “So often, we really don’t stop and appreciate the talents of employees within the university that we so very much take for granted. Looking at Rick's photos I marveled at the quality and talent he has. Each photo captures the intensity of the photo, a moment captured in time and tells its own story. If you walk the halls of Old Main and stop to look at each photo displayed you walk back in Marshall’s own history as well as in the present. The story Rick captures and tells in his photos is amazing. Marshall has the privilege of its history captured in so many aspects.”
And, she continues, “The amazing work he does will forever be one of Marshall’s own treasures because of the history of events that he has captured in his photographs. Marshall is fortunate to have a person that has such talent and passion that is shown in his work. I hope everyone will stop and take a moment to look at Rick’s work and appreciate what a legacy in photos he provides for Marshall. Marshall’s history will continue to be captured every day because of the job Rick does...what an awesome job he does.”
Haye was presented with a plaque
and a check for $100 by President Stephen Kopp.
