On July 24, 2020, Mary Marsh received a Cape Fox employee Tinàa Award. Mary has worked for Cape Fox Facilities Services (CFFS) since March 2016 as a Facilities Management Assistant with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Scientific, Technical, and Other Professional Support Services (STOPS) program. The Cape Fox Tinàa Award is awarded to those employees who have shown outstanding professionalism, excellence of service, and selfless dedication, and Mary Marsh is one of those employees.
Since January 2020, the Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML), part of the NIH Intramural Research Program, has collaborated to provide research, guidance, and testing as it relates to SARS and CoV-2. The work the program is doing has a significant impact on public health information and data during this pandemic. During this time, Mary has performed duties that went above and beyond her daily activities. Mary has often been tasked with last-minute scheduling, personnel tasks within tight deadlines, and additional requests by the Lab Chief for tracking incoming requests associated with COVID-19. Mary does each task asked of her and does them efficiently and successfully. She is a true Cape Fox Team member.
The team at RML contains virologists, immunologists, veterinarians, animal caretakes, administrators, core support groups, and researchers from other disciplines. This group provides the knowledge and ability to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, and they do so while working in the infected zone. Mary is part of a great team of front-line workers and her own dedication shows through in how she is able to step up, adapt, and efficiently handle every task handed to her. Congratulations, Mary, on your Tinàa Award. You deserve it.
