October's A-3 of the Month: "Reggie" Brown of BiologyA building service assistant for the biology department for the past six years, Reggie Brown is described by his supervisor, Rodney Webb, as "a very conscientious worker who goes that extra step to insure...the many wheels (of the department) are turning together..."
He is in charge of shipping and receiving for the department as well as handling maintenance and security issues. His supervisor said he is very adaptable and "tackles problems as they arise." He attends to very minute details. When situations arise, he responds not only instantly but with a positive attitude and an assertive manner. Mr. Brown is also described as a "very warm, caring individual, who takes pride in his job."

After graduating from high school in 1983, Mr. Brown earned an associate degree in marketing from Community College of Philadelphia in 1987.
An active member of his church's choir, men's choir and trustee board, Mr. Brown also works as a volunteer to help youth and the elderly in his neighborhood.
