Carol Larkin has been an extreme help to our unit.  Carol has been assisting the unit with processing  applications during a very critical time between submission/audits of renewals and processing incoming and pending applications.  With early retirement incentives, the unit has lost many of the administrative staff.  Carol immediately stepped in and learned the internal process very quickly and independently.  She is very reliable and her work is efficient and effective.  Needless to say, her work ethic is superb as she is very pleasant to work with and is always a team player.  Carol is not afraid to ask questions and will go above and beyond to assist her co-workers or unit with help when needed.  For these reasons, I would like to nominate Carol Larkin for her excellent work and dedication in our unit.
