Valdemar Alaniz was named the 2016 Employee of the 2nd Quarter Wednesday during a recognition event at City Hall.

The 22-year Street Department employee is a Signal Technical Specialist by day and a college student by night. He is studying for his Master's Degree in Business Administration after recently receiving a Bachelor's Degree. "I am just trying to better myself and move up in the City or open my own business," Valdemar Alaniz said.

Alaniz is described as a loyal and committed employee who is very respectful to the public and his co-workers. When asked if he had advice for fellow employees, Alaniz said, "Don't hesitate to go back to school." A message echoed by City Manager Ron Olson who encourages all employees to take advantage of the City's College Tuition Reimbursement Program and the GED Training Program.
