Jobb recognized for being ´driving force in this department'

SEGUIN, Texas – Recreation Superintendent Chandra Jobb was recently named the September 2017 Employee of the Month. She was nominated by Assistant Parks & Recreation Director Crystal Miranda for “her continuous enthusiasm, management and work ethic promoting the department”.

Jobb has taken on several new responsibilities and is knocking it out of the ‘park’. She now handles all Special Event Applications which includes holding meetings with other city departments so that all service needs are fulfilled. She also worked closely with the city’s senior planner to create new, more accurate maps of city parks. The maps allow visitors to see the specific amenities offered at each site so they can make the best choice for their event or party.

“Chandra is a driving force in this department and goes above and beyond to ensure the job is managed well in meeting customer satisfaction,” said Miranda.

She also tackles big jobs like the Just for Kids Summer Day Camp. She works closely with staff to ensure each summer is special for the kids.

“I get to plan fun activities, guest speakers and trips along with providing a safe atmosphere for the children.   For many of the children in camp, this is their summer vacation, so it better be fun!  I work hard to find new games, crafts, destinations and speakers for them to experience,” said Jobb.

She says the most rewarding aspect of camp is the “memory making”. She is excited to see former campers come in for interviews to be counselors because they want to help new campers have the same experience they did.

“They want to work for the program that produced so many fond memories.  Those former campers want to be a person the campers look up to, just like when they attended camp.  I honestly couldn't think of a better reward than that,” said Jobb.

Please join us in congratulating Chandra Jobb on being selected the September Employee of the Month for the City of Seguin. ###
