Kim Tweed, Oklahoma Conservation Commission's Administration division executive secretary, was named as Employee of the Quarter at the OCC full staff meeting in February 2009. She was recognized again at the March meeting of the Conservation Commission. Kim started work for OCC in 1987 having previously worked in the office of Gov. George Nigh.
"Kim 'takes care of business' everyday and when needed will come in on off-work days or work from home to make sure she has done her job. No responsibility will be failed due to Kim! Most recently she is going the extra mile in coordinating the complete rewriting of OCC’s rules plus the addition of rules for new programs, making sure that every detail is carried out to precision," the nomination read. "When the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts State Meeting cosponsored by OCC moved to new facilities, she jumped to coordinate the change filling gaps created by unexpected demands on coworkers," the nomination said.
"You don’t have to know Kim long to know her priorities: her God, her family, herself and her job – in that order. With the exceptional service she gives to her job, one can only imagine the service she gives to her higher priorities," the nomination went on. "There are no “gray areas” in Kim’s sense of right and wrong. At the same time she remembers her coworkers are human and she shares and remembers their griefs and joys. She does many kind things for people that others don’t about. And she is always open to helping coworkers whenever possible. Anyone who encounters Kim as a representative of OCC will leave with the impression of someone professional and eager to help them to the extent of her ability."
