Six employees were honored Feb. 5 as the 2019 recipients of the Tom and T. Cooper James Government Improvement Awards, which recognizes city of Greensboro employees who have devised innovative and impactful solutions that improved services or productivity.

Keenan Collier, a signals technician in the department of transportation, will receive a $2,500 prize, provided by Tom and T. Cooper James, local commercial real estate developers who sponsor the awards. A team from the Parks and Recreation Department, consisting of Jennifer Hance, Chamreece Diggs, Elizabeth Jernigan, Elyse Tishuk and Alex Zaleski will share a $2,500 prize.

Collier identified a way to improve disposal of aerosol cans by identifying a safer method to allow residual pressure and material to be released.

The Parks and Recreation team implemented the Adult Recess program to engage adults in the community through interactive and unique recreation activities while filling a gap in programs and saving the department money and resources. Adult Recess was geared towards adults ages 21-50, a group that has been underserved in regards to recreational programming. The program allows adults to unwind and engage with other adults while invoking a sense of nostalgia while playing childhood games. Adult Recess replaced the previous “Parks and Rec Fest” program, saving the City about $2,000 and had more than 600 adults in attendance. The program received national recognition in the Wall Street Journal, NPR and more.
