Don Wallish, transportation construction inspector, has been named the state Department of Transportation district office Employee of the Month for December 2013.
Wallish is a construction inspector who handles a variety of items with limited supervision.
While he is a relatively new transportation construction inspector, he was nominated for this honor, a news release from the office said, because of his willingness to go the extra mile to achieve a quality project. His supervisors have great confidence in his ability to thoroughly address all project requirements.
During extreme weather, Wallish has left the safety of his home to ensure the safety of the traveling public. For example, following a summer storm he was contacted to check the maintenance and protection of traffic, and without delay he checked all signs, fixing some himself, and then notified his supervisor within the hour.
Wallish, the news release said, has instructed interns, showing patience and fortitude. He devotes the time necessary to teach the students thoroughly.
He has completed a mix of projects, with outstanding results because of his strong work ethic and principled approach to the work at hand.
Wallish, who started as a temporary employee in 2007 became a permanent hire nearly three years ago. He lives in Point Township with his significant other Jessica Dworsky.
