Congratulations, Wanda Becker,

2nd Qtr. 2018 Employee Honor Award Recipient


Please join us in congratulating Wanda Becker of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe Economic Development Agency (EDA), who has been selected as the 2nd quarter honoree for the Jamestown Employee Honor Award. Wanda is among nine employees nominated by their peers, supervisors, citizens, customers and patients for their outstanding contributions to our workplace. The quarterly Jamestown Employee Honor Award recognizes employees who:


Go above and beyond by providing exceptional service

Demonstrate creativity resulting in cost savings or efficiency

Play a key role as a volunteer for tribal functions/events

Act as an ambassador to the community

Demonstrate a high level of initiative.


Wanda began working for the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe in December 2003, and made a tremendous impact on the EDA and the people it serves as expressed in the nomination:


I am proud to nominate Wanda Becker for the Jamestown Employee Honor Award. For 15 years Wanda has diligently and loyally served as the Operations Assistant for the Jamestown Economic Development Authority (EDA). She has provided consistent and outstanding customer service to Tribal Citizens and non-Tribal clients alike. Her upbeat attitude and friendly demeanor is appreciated by all those who come in contact with her. She is kind, considerate and will always take the initiative in a pinch. Most recently, Carlsborg Self-storage (CSS), an enterprise that is largely overseen by Wanda, built out 40 new storage units. The goal to fill those units was 6 months. Through creative marketing and hard work, Wanda was able to fill each unit (100%) capacity in about 30 days! In addition to running CSS, Wanda provides customer service support to Jamestown Excavating and volunteers on the Tribe's Employee Appreciation Committee. Each day, she represents the Tribe and the EDA by supporting Tribal businesses and entrepreneurs. Despite the inherent challenges of the job, she maintains a smile on her face and warmness in her heart for all of those that are fortunate enough to work with her.”


As an expression of our gratitude for her contributions to our workplace, Wanda’s name will be added to a perpetual wall plaque for display in Tribal offices, and she may choose between $100.00 cash or a paid day.


Congratulations to all our 2nd quarter nominees:


Dustin Brenske, SCS
