Employee of the Year 2018

2018 EOY - KAYCEE BRASWELL 02.19.2019_C

February 19, 2019

Mayor Davis:

The Employee Recognition Committee has selected Kaycee N. Braswell as Augusta, Georgia’s Employee of the Year for 2018.

Kaycee Braswell has been serving in the capacity of Fleet Administrative Coordinator since August 2015. She has consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic by effectively and efficiently focusing on the myriad of tasks that are presented to her. She displays a positive and enthusiastic attitude in her daily activities while supporting many department employees of Augusta. In October 2017, she identified a potential problem with the expiration of all 1,515 fuel cards used by employees. She then coordinated with the card provider and within 20 work days of receiving the cards, she had distributed the cards to the 53 organizations that needed them. Upon the retirement of the Fleet Operations Officer Mrs. Braswell, in addition to her regular duties, took it upon herself to learn the requirements for obtaining tags, titles and registrations for fleet vehicles. She also took the impressive initiative of shouldering the responsibility for the acquisition of small equipment. Also, she recently began writing specifications for light vehicles, public safety vehicles and drafting agendas for Commission approval. Kaycee was instrumental in the sale of over 390 auction lots in 2017 which resulted in the appropriate fund distribution of revenues in the amount of $531,378.07. This required that she research various items, inventory and document each item and list the items on the GovDeals auction site. She then completed the sale once payment was made. Her accountability was flawless.

Kaycee is a highly valued employee. Her performance brings a great deal of credit to the Augusta Commission, Central Services Department and Fleet Management.

Based on this nomination, Kaycee’s outstanding contribution to Central Services and her service to Augusta, Georgia the Employee Recognition Committee would appreciate you joining us in recognizing Kaycee as the 2018 Employee of the Year.

Thank you,
