SEGUIN, Texas – Micah Shoemake, Information Systems Technician in the IT Department at the City of Seguin, has been chosen as the Employee of the Month for December 2019.

Micah was selected for this award for his outstanding efforts that support technical issues citywide.

He was praised for closing out 769 helpdesk requests for 2019, accounting for 23% in helpdesk ticket volume.

IT Director Shane McDaniel, who nominated Micah for the award, said, “Micah quietly goes about performing his responsibilities on behalf of the City. He is a tremendous asset for the IT Department and the City of Seguin!”

As a token of appreciation for his commitment to the City of Seguin, Micah received an Employee of the Month plaque and gift card.
