Accountant plays by the numbersEmily Longhenry is “extremely vigilant” in processing payments, according to her nominator Irene Bricker, and “thinks across departments,” says Bricker. Bricker made the nomination before she retired this summer, and made sure to stop by to congratulate Longhenry at the Staff Employee of the Month ceremony Dec. 12. Making payments to the retirement system is one of Longhenry’s jobs, for which Bricker is certainly appreciative!
The Accountant I in the Business Office always meets her deadlines and therefore assists other departments in meeting theirs, earning her the December 2007 award. “I rely heavily on Emily,” says supervisor Ann Helfrinch, “as she is always willing to do whatever needs to be done, whenever it needs to be done, to further the mission of the college.”
Longhenry has worked at Columbus State for more than nine years. She spent her first 10 months sharing an office with her supervisor, with old boxes stuffed with files from the 1970s underneath her feet, according to Helfrinch.
“Emily goes the extra mile every day,” says Helfrinch, “but to give you a good example, one day I had to drop her off in front of the Ohio Bureau of Management downtown with a reporting package that was due in five minutes. When I drove around the block to pick her back up, she was holding her arm. I asked her what happened to her arm, and she said she jammed it in the elevator door because it was closing and she didn’t want to wait for the next one and miss the deadline!
“Now that’s going the extra mile!”
